"Obrigado e bom dia."

Translation:Thank you and good morning.

It sounded like "obrigada" and since it is a woman's voice talking, I assumed it was, but got it wrong. Unfair.


true, i missed 'e' in fast speaking mode, and put comma insted, not accepted either, ehh, as if it was really any difference...


Either way, it would just mean thank you. When you are a female, yes, you would say "obrigada" but obrigado and obrigada both just mean thank you.


I agree with fishwish. I defy any human (Brazilian, Portuguese or other) to hear that the computer generated FEMALE voice was saying obrigadO!

Bad one.


I'm Brazilian. She really said "obrigada". :D


As I said to fishwish, Either way, it would just mean thank you. When you are a female, yes, you would say "obrigada" but obrigado and obrigada both just mean thank you.


I put "Thanks and good morning" and it said it was correct but "Thanks and have a good morning" is acceptable also. Is the "have a" simply understood to be in the sentence? and which one is more correct. Obrigado!


To me, "have a" is not implied. They are both perfectly correct sentences, but they are often used in different contexts. I would say "have a good morning" is said only if either the speaker or the addressee is leaving, but "good morning" can also be a greeting.


You wouldn't say thanks before greeting anyone. It's clear from the thanks that you are leaving.


Why does the d in dia sound like an English g and the d in Obrigado sound like an English d?


"Di" is pronounced like "gee" in some regions in Brazil. But it does not happen with da, de, do or du.


Doesn't it happen with de as a standalone word?


Yes, because the letter "e" at the end of words also sounds like "i" (/ee/) (when it does not have an accent)

"Gosto de você"


The i and e soften the consonant similar to English letters c and g.


Would have thought "good day" was more appropriate than "good morning" in this case.


ta mostrado dia eu passei o mouse e falo que é gay e fala que é outra palavra morning


yup, it could be "nice day" (Have a nice day = tenha um bom dia) But good morning is always translated as "bom dia", and not "boa manhã""


Aha. I answered "Thank you and good day" and it was accepted. :)


Thank you. There was a time when it did not accept Good day for bom dia.


yes, but: greeting a person in the morning is "good morning", but answering the peson would be " thanks, and have a nice day".


How do use bom dia as 'good morning' and 'have a nice day' ?


I said thank you, good day, and it counted it wrong?
