I am a MAN!
Can I say "Não sou um menino" instead?
p.s. Glad you can tell what gender you are.. now onto bigger and better things maybe?
You can ommit the pronoun in some circunstances, so "não sou um menino" is correct.
why is sou and nao switched in this sentence?
Não (no, not, don't) is placed before the verb. Eu não tenho dinheiro = I have no money = I don't have money.
Because, in Portuguese you would say "not" before "am".
How would one say "not yet a woman"?
Yet - ainda. Not yet a woman - ainda não uma mulher.
It is not yet finished - ainda não está acabado (acabar - to finish, acabado - finished).
I'm not a girl, not yet a woman
Menino was previously used for "kid" as well, but now it marked kid as error and expect me to use this "lad" instead...
Kid is "criança"
I wrote "I man not a boy" by accident lol ffs
What do you call a kid (male) in porteguese?
Kid: "criança" for both sex.
But does menino mean kid or child, and what does it a lad?
kid is criança (for both girl and boy), but kid (male) is menino (boy) and kid (female) is menina (girl)
Just to make sure, what is the exact way to pronounce eu? To me, it sounds like either "ew" or "eh-yu"....
I was wondering the same..to me it sounds like: ee-eh-uh
