Assunto:  Several vs various
 
Mensagem:  I thought they were synonymous at first glance. 

Now I see that "various" can be a false friend.

SEVERAL= VÁRIOS
 (not necessarily different)

VARIOUS = DIVERSOS
 (not simply related to an amount, but always of other kinds)

Aren´t I right?

THANKS, JOSI!
