Hi Rudy,

Thanks for posting.

"2" is a cardinal numbers that is gender specific in Portuguese, so, for example:

Tenho dois carros.

I have two cars.

"Carros" is a masculine word, so "2" is used as "dois".

Tenho duas bolsas.

I have two bags.

"bolsas" is a feminine word, so "2" is used as "duas".

Meia dúzia is an expression for half a dozen (units of something), or six units of something.

Comprei meia dúzia de maçãs.

I bought half a dozen apples.

It can also be used to mean "just a few".

Ontem tinha só meia dúzia de alunos na aula.

Yesterday there were just a few students at class.


If you have any further doubts, please let us know

Oi Luiz,

Thank you for the insight about how it is in Rio. We've got many students that will probably visit Rio in their next trip to Brazil! :wink:

Which one do you use the most?

Braden, o mesmo acontece aqui no Rio de Janeiro (vovozinho e vovozinha) e eu creio que acontece também em São Paulo e vários outros estados do Brasil. A ordem mais conhecida é (avô, avó), (vô, vó), (vovô, vovó) e (vovozinho, vovozinha).

Braden, the same happens here in Rio de Janeiro (vovozinho and vovozinha) and I think also happens in São Paulo and many other states of Brazil. The order better known is (avô, avó), (vô, vó), (vovô, vovó) and (vovozinho, vovozinha).

Great question Michael! :grin: and great explanation Paloma!:wink:

While I was in the Nordeste (Northeast of Brazil) I heard some variations using the diminutive: "vovozinha" and "vovozinho." These both are very sweet. I've only heard these in the Nordeste though, and mostly from girls.

@Michael Silva


The most usual cute way to call your grandparents in Portuguese are "vovô" (grandpa) and "vovó" (grandma). Actually, you can also just cut the "a" from "avô" and "avó", and call them "vô" and "vó".

Where are you from?

I know this does'nt relate to "numbers" but can you please tell me some fun cute names for Grandpa and Grandma in Brasilian Portuguese? (Not Avo)We are looking for the equivalent to "Nana,Granny,etc." Something sweet, casual,tender. Do those words exist?
