Mensagem:  Dear "forum mates",

could you tell me how to translate some Portuguese words into English?

- "acomodado" - someone who isn´t willing to fight for anything, as he gets used to the situations. For example:
(a simple situation)- I lost my pen, and a friend lent me hers. So, I "acomodei" and didn´t even try to find mine or buy another one.

- "camarote" - at a party or concert, or even in the Carnival parade.

- palmito

- queimada/queimado, that ball game that students like to play at school.

Thanks.
