Can somebody explain the different meanings of lanche?
Put your mouse on the word then you can see, it means snack btw :)
I think I am hungry =)
So does the 'ch' in portuguese sound like the 'sh' sound in english
Yes, you are correct.
Some words with 'CH': cheio; chamego; chamar; chifre; chofer; achar; machucar; salsicha.
These words have the 'SH' sound as in: sheep; shark; shell; shoe; shelf; shirt.
are lanche and leite similar in sound? I couldn't tell them apart when listening to the computer voice. :(
They are different. Check out the following site. You can listen to native speakers' pronunciation: http://pt.forvo.com/
Wow, thanks for the link. You have my lingot :)
They both start with an l and end with a che sound, but the middle is different. Lanche has an ahn sound and leite has an ay sound.
lanche: lɜ̃ŋʃi and leite; lejʧi is very different.
Lanche "Luhnshee" or "Lunhshê" ("shee" as in "she", "shê" like the "shi" in "Ship")
Leite /Lay-tê/ /Layt/ or /Lay-chee/
What's the rule for using "bom" and "boa"? Thanks
Bom for masculine, boa for feminine. ( Dia is tricky, because it is masculine)
bom - masculine and boa - feminine we have to use according to the objects gender.
Bom is when the word's gender is masculine and boa when is feminine
isn't "lanche" = "lunch"?
Lunch = Almoço
Lanche = Snack
You're welcome :)
