You might have noticed that some English words are “aportuguesadas“, that is, we create the Portuguese version of the English word. A good example is:
- a drink (noun) = um drinque
Pronunciation tip: Place the emphasis on the 1st syllable and pronounce the final “e”. We don’t have stop consonants in Brazilian Portuguese.
