Hi PortuguesePod101.com Listeners! Do you find the accent marks helpful? Or an extra challenge?

Oi Rebecca,


There are few examples of words in Portuguese where we have more than one accent in a word.

One example I can think of is "bรชnรงรฃo" (blessing). And in this case, the first syllable (bรชn) is the tonic one.

As you can see, in this and other cases, the first syllable has the accent to show it should be the tonic syllable.


I hope it helps, and let us know if you have further questions!

If there are multiple accent marks where is the tonic syllable?

Oi Eva,


The nasal sounds for รฃ and รต are different.

As a very basic explanation, "รฃo" is pronounced as "own", similar to "oun" in the word "ounce."

And "รตe" is pronounced as "oyn", similar to sound of the vowels in "coin."


I hope it helps, and with practice and listening you'll be able to say and hear the difference between them.


If you have any other questions, please let us know!

Is the nasal sound "oe" as in "poe" (put) (imperative) the same as "ao" as in "pao" (bread)?


Are the nasal sounds a and o with tildes above them pronounced in the same way?
