LINGUISTICS & CULTURE

I was at a cattle expo in Bauru when a fellow asked, "O senhor quer comprar um chapeeeeuuuu?" It took almost five minutes for him to finish saying the last word. Well, maybe only four minutes. I thought he was teasing me, but, when I listened to him closely, that was his normal accent. When I looked up "caipira" in the dictionary, his photo was next to the entry.
It may also been in SP where I heard Brazilians speak with what I would have sworn was an American accent. That is, they sounded like Americans speaking Portuguese. The vowels were not pure but rather like some in American English. I can't think of a specific accent at this time, but let's say they were saying "casa" using the "a" sound from hat, cat, that, bat, mat, etc. Very odd, at least to my ears.
