Uill, seo an leth eile... :P

Nuair a thòisich mi air Portuguese ionnsachadh ghabh mi tòrr tòrr faclan bhon Bheurla. Ged a tha coltas rud beag eadar-dhealaichte aca, tha iad ionnan gu leòr, m.e. information -> informação, chan eil seo ro dhoirbh, a bheil? Ann an Fraingis, sgrìobhaidh tu fiù 's information, ged a tha am fuaimneachadh eadar-dhealaichte.

'S e ceist eile a th' anns a' ghràmair, tha sin fìor.
