Different, but the same Oct 16, 2002

Dear Kaori,

Brazilian Portuguese is different from Iberian Portuguese in some points:

1) Different words for the same things:

Brazil Portugal

açougue talho butchery

fila bicha line, queue

terno fato men\'s suit

2) Different pronunciation for the same sounds, especially the \"s\"

3) In Portugal, the use of the pronouns is more frequent than in Brazil

All this makes mutual understanding a little difficult, but not impossible.
