the journal where the turttle writes the news

Day 17: We now have a basic understanding of the language. We are beginning to read what they call "newspapers." They are not yet onto us.

O som no modo normal diz (The sound in the normal mode says): "Os pássaros leem um jornal."

e (and)

no modo devagar (ln the slow mode): "Os pássaros leem o jornal."

November 24, 2013


Exactly! I missed this question because I heard "um jornal," and didn't listen to it in the slow mode. Grrrrr.....

December 19, 2013


This is the reason I listen to the slow-mo before committing, because it ticks me off to lose hearts over it. I understand that native speakers run words together in most any language -- and my husband is Brazilian -- but it's particularly hard to distinguish between this voice's O and UM at normal speed.

March 14, 2014


The sound of o it is like or and the sound of um it is like run without the r, I messed up and I'm Brazilian.

O som de o é como or e o som de um é como run sem o r, Eu errei e sou Brasileiro.

May 17, 2014


Agreed, and this is not the first time it's happened. It's frustrating to keep losing hearts over this. :-(

It doesn't surprise me, we have a green owl teaching us Portuguese!

A duck walks into a drug store and buys a chapstick. The clerk says, "Will that be cash or charge?" The duck says, "Just put it on my bill!"

Two vultures were in the desert eating a dead clown. The first vulture asks the second vulture: "Does this taste funny to you?"

Did you hear about the newly discovered red-phase owl. It was found in San Francisco sittin’ on the dock of the bay. Scientists are not sure what the common name will be, but the scientific name is Otus Redding.

A Blue Jay applied for the receptionists job at the new AT&T headquarters. The interviewer, a bit non-plussed, told the Jay that the candidate had to be able to type at least 80 words per minute. The Jay demonstrated a 100 wpm talent! Not wanting to hire a BIRD for the job, the interviewer told the Jay that the candidate had to be able to take dictation. The Jay surpassed all other candidates. Finally the interviewer thought he'd be able to get rid of the Jay with "the candidate must be bilingual!" The Jay replied "Meow!!"

I understand that a crow has one less pinion feather than a raven. Therefore how do you tell a crow from a raven? It's a matter of opinion.

Judge: young man, it says here you shot and killed a California Condor. How do you plead? Defendant: Guilty your honor. Judge: GUILTY!? Don't you know how endangered these condors are? There are hardly any left at all. Defendant: Yes sir, I know, but I had to feed my family, we're so poor. Judge: That's no excuse. I fine you 30 days in jail. By the way, what does California Condor taste like? Defendant: It's real good, kinda like a cross between Bald Eagle and Whooping Crane!

Question: Why do hummingbirds hum? Answer: Because they don't know the words.

I wrote lêm instead of leem and got the correct answer. do they mean the same thing?just two different ways of writing it?

October 16, 2013


They have the same sound, but lêm is not the correct way to spell it. We used to write it "lêem", but "leem" is now the correct way to write the word. The word lêem is considered wrong since the new Orthographic Agreement came into force in January 2009.

October 21, 2013


I can't distinguish the voice the I.A "um" from the D.A "o".

December 11, 2013


"o" when is "alone" sounds like /oo/ in English and "um" = /oom/.
