Assunto:  Is pronounciating "thanks" like if it we
 
Mensagem: 

I also feel sometimes that natives fail to pronounce the th sound in thanks. But I'm not the right person to answer this question, since I'm not a native speaker.

 

Literally, carne e osso can be translated as flesh and blood. In English, however, this expression is only used to refer to one's family or one's relative. Example:

 

If you dare touch my flesh and blood, I will bring my hammer down on you like Thor gone berserk.

(Hamlet, Shakespeare)

 

If you want the Brazilian meaning of the expression, try using live or in person.
