What are you talking about!?
Maybe you have just misread my posting.
I'm clarifying what I wrote earlier using BLOCK LETTERS.
Please read that again because I really don't know what you are talking about!
Now in contrast with the Portuguese language what I really love about English is that the native speakers have a very broad vocabulary but not only that, there's a word for everything IN ENGLISH (mainly I guess) but as FOR ME, AS A NON-NATIVE SPEAKER OF ENGLISH, I feel at times somewhat limited as far as my use of a broad range of words in ENGLISH...
The thing with us brazilians is that we use "one" word for a lot of different things even though there are more words in Portuguese TO SAY A PARTICULAR THING NOT THAT THERE MORE WORDS IN PORTUGUESE THAN ENGLISH --- I NEVER SAID THAT, and I don't know why WE BRAZILIANS DON'T LOOK FOR DIFFERENT WORDS IN OUR OWN LANGUAGE.
