What does Tá mean in Portuguese?
What’s up, Video guys! Are you ok? What does Tá mean in Portuguese?
Well, in our Dica today, we are going to talk about the word Tá.
The word Tá comes from the verb estar (to be) and we use it in different contexts.
Tá with location
For example, today we are going to talk about the word tá in a location context:
A gente tá na Praia de Copacabana.
We are at Copacabana Beach.
A gente tá no Rio de Janeiro.
We are in Rio de Janeiro.
Ela tá no trabalho agora.
She is at work now.
Tá with adjectives
Another way of using the word Tá is with an adjective.
João tá feliz.
João is happy.
Marina tá triste.
Marina is sad.
Tá with acceptance
And we can also use the word tá with an agreeing idea, acceptance.
I am going to do a small dialogue. For example:
João: Amanhã, nós vamos sair cedo, José.
João: Tomorrow, we are going to leave early, José.
So, this is the usage of the word Tá
There are other contexts that we are going to see, but we know these ones already, Tá with a location idea, with adjetive and acceptance.
So, see you in our next Video Dica.
Big hug to you all!
Bye, bye from Rio de Janeiro!
