a quinta is farm in European Portuguese.
That explains a LOT of things about names of places in Brazil! (We were a colony explored by Portugal)
Quinta is accepted! Yay! :) :)
I had never heard of fazenda, but I have been on several quintas.
Quintal is yard. :)
Quinta from quintana A street in the Roman camp, separating the 5th and 6th maniples, containing the marketplace.
Maniple: Roman Legion tactical unit of 60 or 120 men ) • From Latin manipulus • handful • From manus ( hand ) and pleõ ( fill )
fazenda Spanish cognate hacienda Doublet • from Latin facienda, faciendus (which is to do), from faciõ ( do, make )
So in wat context can roça be used to mean farm?
I don't think so
