What is Maluco in Portuguese
In Brazil, we use the word Maluco when we want to say that someone is crazy. It can be used in informal situations, for example, when we are talking with someone or about someone we know. It can be pejorative or playful. It depends on the situation.
Raphael: Tá maluca, Luana?! Por que tanto açúcar ?
Luana: Maluco é quem nega dinheiro!
Raphael: Are you crazy, Luana?! Why do you have to put so much sugar?
Luana: Crazy is the person that says No to money!
Maluco is also used when we want to refer to a friend in a very informal way. Brazilians are a huge fan of this word!
Moisés: E aí, maluco! Tudo tranquilo?
Raphael: Tudo, cara! E você?
Moisés: Tudo ótimo!
Moisés: What’s up dude! Is everything ok?
Raphael: Yeah, man! What about you?
Moisés: Everything is perfect!
