Funny English Words in Brazil

vantage_stain_remover

Brazilians have a very sing-songy way of speaking. Their intonation goes up-and-down all the time. The way that the adapt English words into Portuguese is very cute. They love to add an “y” at the end of all of the commonly adapted English words. Here are some of my favorites:

Blogy

Facey Booky

Ketchupy

Internety

I-Phoney

They also like to put the “y” sound on the end of names like:

Patricky

Joicey

Celisey

And my personal favorite line that I got was from one man who told me, “Biggy Thank You!”
