jopolho commented on the word porque
The language have four different forms: por que, porque, por quê and porquê, all with different meanings.
Por que is literally why.
Ex: Why are you doing that?
Por que você está fazendo isso?
Porque is because.
Ex: Because I want to do.
Porque eu quero fazer.
Por quê and porquê I can't give examples with my basic English, but I will try another time.
jopolho commented on the word brazilianisation
I know Brasilianisation and Brazilianization. I think the most correct is Brazilianization. Because we are speaking of the country Brazil (in English). Brasil with "s" is the Portuguese word for the country, my country, inclusive.
