Mensagem:  What is the context????????????????

A "freak" is something extremely unusual. 

There was a freak accident on the freeway when an airplane made an emergency landing in the outside lane.  There were six injuries.  (Do planes normally land on freeways?)

A "freak"is a rather ugly word to describe someone with a horrible disfigurement.  The term is commonly associated with circuses and sideshows.

We saw a freak last night with two heads and six arms.

A "freak" is a person who has an unusual interest or whose personality is rather bizarre.  It's not necessarily a negative term.

She's a dancing freak.  She loves to dance.  She can't hear music and sit still.
He's a neatness freak.  He goes crazy if things aren't in perfect order.
