What’s up, guys, are you ok?
As you know me already, I am Moisés, I am the coordinator at Rio & Learn and today we are going to do our Video Dica in which we will talk about the ‘L’ in the end of the words. We are going to talk about how the letter ‘L’ works in the end of the words of Portuguese Language. At least with carioca’s accent.
At Brazilian Portuguese, the letter ‘L’, in the end of the words normally has the sound of ‘U’. It doesn’t happen in all Brazilian accents, but it happens with the carioca’s accent and, as we are in Rio de Janeiro, let’s talk about our accent.
So here it is: the letter ‘L’ becomes ‘U’, in its sound.
Let’s see here some examples with some words:
Sal (Salt), Mal (Bad), Natal (Christmas), Carnaval (Carnival), Mel (Honey), Hotel (Hotel), Brasil (Brazil), Funil (Funnel), Farol (Lighthouse), Anzol (hook), Quartel (Quarter), Amável (Lovely), Saudável (Healthy), Abril (April), Anel (Ring), Canal (Channel), Sinal (Sign), Fútil (Shallow), that is out of our organization, completely! and, Jornal (Newspaper).
Well, now we know how these words work, this ‘L’ in the of the words of the Portuguese Language, as I said before, at the carioca’s accent. We saw here that the sound of ‘L’ turns to ‘U’, ok?
And here I have a small challenge for you: What’s the difference between ‘mau’ (bad) and ‘mal’ (bad)?
Since both words have the same sound. But is ended with ‘U’ and the other is ended with ‘L’. Let’s think about it together! Ok?
And then, we will see the answer in our next Dica do Dia.
