With major events such as the 2014 World Cup and the Games taking place in Brazil this summer, more people than ever before are either learning Portuguese, or simply trying to get to know more about the 6th largest language in the world (in terms of native speakers).
In the video above, 7 non-native Portuguese speakers from 7 different countries (some already fluent in Portuguese, others not so much) give everything theyÁve got to pronounce some tricky words in Portuguese. Think you could do better? To help you master the art of Portuguese pronunciation, here are a few tips on conquering those pesky tongue-twisting Portuguese words. 1. Exceööåo (exception) xc - The letter Áx" can be a big problem for people learning Portuguese. There are 5 different ways of pronouncing it, and the rules governing when to use each pronunciation have so many exceptions that itÁs better not to bother. We recommend consulting a dictionary with phonetic transcriptions. For example, when "x" is combined with Ác," it sounds like Ás" as in Ásoap. " ö - This symbol under the Ác" is called cedilla (or Ácedilha," in Portuguese) and it changes the way the "c" is pronounced in languages like Portuguese, French and Catalan.
In some languages, like Turkish and Kurdish, it exists as a proper letter in its own right Á the "É. " In Portuguese, itÁs pronounced like an Ás" as in "Saturday. " öåo - This one is a real nightmare for non-native Portuguese speakers. There is no exact match for it in the English language, but if you think of Áoun" being spoken in a very nasal way youÁre getting close. The symbol on top of the Áa" is called tilde (also Átil" in Portuguese), and indicates that the vowel is pronounced nasally. 2. Amanhöå (tomorrow) nh - Another sound with no real equivalent in English, it is pronounced in a similar way as Ány" in ÁEnya. " öå - Also pronounced nasally, this is somewhat similar to Áan. " 3. Lagartixa (tropical house gecko) x - As explained above, the Áx" in Portuguese can be pronounced in 5 different ways.
Here, it is pronounced in the same way as the Ásh" in Áshocked. " 4. Trocadilho (word pun) lh - The Áh" after the Ál" is pronounced like a very short Ái. " 5. Cabeleireiro (hairdresser) ei - Pronounced like the Áay" in "lay. " This sound is repeated for both the Álei" and Árei" parts of this word. r - When placed between two vowels, the Ár" makes a sound similar to a Ád". Say repeatedly Ádadadada. " The Ád" becomes softer and softer until you naturally start hearing Ádadararara. " Ta-da! 6. Paralelepöpedo (paving stone, parallelepiped) It may have simple phonemes, but the real difficulty of this word lies in its repeated switching of vowels and consonants. The stressed syllable, as the acute accent indicates, is on Ápö. " 7.
Otorrinolaringologista (otolaryngologist) The main issue here of course is the size of the word, but letÁs take a look at a few of the sounds in particular: rr - Pronounced the same way as the Áh" in Áhouse," this rule also applies to a single Ár" if itÁs placed at the beginning of a word. So, if youÁd like to pronounce the name of the host city of the 2016 Olympics like an authentic Brazilian, you should say something like ÁHio de Janeido. " go - When placed before the vowels Áo," Áa" and Áu," the Ág" in Portuguese sounds like the "g" in the words Ágorilla," Ágarlic" and Águn. " gi - When it comes before the vowels Áe" and Ái," the Ág" has a sound that can be described as something between the Ág" in Ágigolo" and the Ásh" in Áshe. " This soft Ág" is also similar to the way the Ás" is pronounced in Áunusual. "
