    • “Goes” (without accent) is the archaic spelling of “Góis”, which is a small town in the district of Coimbra, Portugal. This surname presumably refers back to this region and is unrelated to Goa. Coincidentally, a man from Goa would be called Goês (with accent – note the difference)! So, it’s pretty close.

  • Eu pensava que se escreve 14 como “quatorze.” Mas na transcrição está escrito “catorze.” Tanto faz? É que uma forma é preferida?

    • Ambas as formas existem em português, mas no português europeu, há uma forte preferência por ‘catorze’ 🙂

  • Sempre é interessante descobrir a origem das palavras e expressões. Muitas vezes tenho comido pratos “vindaloo,” sem saber que a origem do nome e portuguesa, e não Urdu ou Hindu…
