  5. "Eu tenho um pente vermelho, …

"Eu tenho um pente vermelho, mas não um verde."

Translation:I have a red comb, but not a green one.

February 24, 2013



Can "pente" also be used for "brush" (a hair brush)? Or is it really so specific that it only means "comb" (narrow with just one row of teeth)?


Pente - comb - with teeth Escova - brush - with bristles Would you ask for a comb when you want a brush?


Should it really be necessary with "one" in the end?


in English, you use it (singular) to refer to something previously referred to, not the same in Portuguese


Mas -- the female Portuguese voice says -- Maws; the male -- mice. Same as mais. Brazilians I know pronounce mas and mais the same. Is this correct?
