The funny part of this is that if "pão" is not nazalized, it turns into a different word and completely changes the meaning of the sentence (in an unfortunate way).


That would be really, erm, inappropriate for this particular group, too. Perhaps I should have a word with Director.


Great story, Teka! I've banged my head against Portuguese phonics only once, when I spent a week in Brazil on very short notice. I thought my (limited) Spanish would help, and it did somewhat, once I'd mapped the differences and correspondences in sounds. Of course, my older Spanish knowledge kept reasserting itself, sometimes with (according to my hosts) hilarious differences between what I thought I'd said, and what I'd really said.


I have the opposite problem when I try to speak Spanish to people. There's only so long I can keep it up until I lapse into fractured franglais-ish portunhol. Frustrating for both of us.


Some consider Brazilian Portuguese phonetics the easiest aspect in learning the language; just try to conjugate all the verbs...but between English phonetics (unless you're a native speaker) and Brazilian phonetics, I take Portuguese anytime.
