Why is "I already have produced nine films," wrong?

Why is "I have already produced" and not just "I produced already"

This tricked me again. Nove is nine. If I wanted to say new, I would say ‘‘novos filmes‘‘ ?

does jà always have an accent? I feel like sometimes I've seen it without...I could be dreaming.

Yes, always, but the correct form is "já", not "jà". This last accent ` is called "crase" and is only used to show that the preposition "a" is combined with a word that starts with "a". Its use means that in its place there are two letters "a" together and the first one is, necessarily, the preposition "a":

  • Eu dei água à menina (eu dei água "a a" menina - I gave water to the girl)

  • Eu dei água *àquele" menino (eu dei água "a aquele" menino - I gave water to that boy)

This accent name's not "crase", it's "acento grave" (grave accent). The occurrence of a crase (it's a phenomenom) is indicated by a "crase". The pronounce of a letter with this diacritic has no difference from its original pronunciation. And you're right about the "crase", it's a "double a" :)
