Hello EMB folks,

 

Some concerns have raised here for the company who I work with related to word "shame". We would like to know its application in an overall basis. I have learnt that we can use it in some cases of sorrow, to feel sth from someone who lost someone, etc , there are some that I have used in : What a pitty !!! I am sorry about that !!!

 

I have heard also "WHAT A SHAME" in portuguese would be "que vergonha" but not is a sense of  pity, suffering or mercy ....

 

Can you please add your comments on this ?

 

My kindest regards,

 

Marçal Camargo
