Assunto:  Another question about translation...
 
Mensagem:  Hi! This is Lindi again. You all helped me so much with my last question, I really appreciate it. I had another question related to my last one, that I thought you all might know the answer for. Here goes...as I said before my choir is singing Muie' Rendara. Some of the actual text is "Virgulino e lampeao" and "O seu no-me e' Virgulino a a pelidoe lampeao E lamp'e, lamp'e, lamp'e, lamp'e seu no me'e Virgulino a a pelido'e lampeao". You all said the best translations for "Lampeao" in English is big lamp. What does it mean in this context. The same thing? Is she calling Virgulino a big lamp? If so is that a compliment or an insult? Just curious and a tad confused. Again, thank you so much for your help before. It helped alot. If you know any answers to this question, I would love to hear your response. Thanks again Lindi McDonald
