Quem fala baú? Meu deus

'Baú' é comum em Brasília. "Perdi o baú!"

Nossa, não ensina o cara errado, ninguém fala isso aqui no Brasil!!!

'Cê tá ligado' que o tópico é sobre gírias? Em Brasília este termo é comum. Eu moro na cidade , então tenho propriedade para afirmar isso. E só porque eu não ouvi ou usei certa gíria ou termo eu jamais afirmarei que ninguém fala isso. So, let your slang there to help everybody to learn more about this country foi o que o a cara escreveu lá em cima. Então, gírias de todas as regiões estão valendo. E com certeza não é bom ele só conhecer essas expressões que você mencionou como exemplo. A não ser que o objetivo principal dele seja praticar algum assalto ou, quem sabe, saber ou desconfiar que está sendo assaltado. Tô de brinks.

Dear friend, you can say to your friends some of these:

  • Get very close to them and say: ''Perdeu playboy, passa a grana!"
  • When you need to do something you say: '' A parada é a seguinte, tenho que resolver umas paradas!"
  • When someone gives you a weird looks you say: '' Coé mermão, rala peito...'' said in the right way, people will leave you alone, trust me.
  • When someone says something to you and you get it, you answer with: '' tô ligado'', can be also be followed by '' mermão, maluco, viado, bixona, etc'' Also the word '' coé'' is VERY, VERY useful, depending on which intonation you give to it, here's a few examples:

  • ''coé" said it with a angry look/confronation voice, can also be followed by: ''mermão, maluco, viado, bixona, etc''

  • ''coé" said with a happy face, can also be followed by: '' mermão, maluco, viado, bixona, etc''
  • ''coé'' said with a uncertain look on your face, dont need any follow up...

Any doubts just aske me
