portuguese use the article: "é A minha bolsa"
Pode ser com ou sem o artigo.
You can use it too
Or "It's my purse"?
Isn't pocketbook the same as purse (or bag)? Not being a woman, I do not know these things in either language.
I hear 'é mia bolsa'. Should it be pronounced like that?
Bolsa.... does it mean bag (like shopping bag) and purse? Is that in Brazilian or European Portuguese? I heard "maleta" used for purse in a portuguese movie.
i think its a purse not a shopping bag
