A Gíria Brasileira
I have talked a lot about Brazilian Slang on this site, but I’m not sure if I have mentioned the Portuguese word for slang! The word for slang in Portuguese is gíria, as in “Ele fala muita gíria.” – “He uses a lot of slang.”
In general, Brazilians use a lot of slang, mostly between friends. Brazilian Portuguese is an extremely creative and quickly evolving language. Regional slang varies greatly in Brazil, more than in any other country that I have visited. On this blog I have made posts for the commonly used slang in every region of Brazil, but slang in Brazil varies even between neighboring towns!
If you have anything else to say about slang in Portuguese or Slang in Brazil, I invite you to comment below. Thanks!
