    Seja bem vindo William!

    I was actually very glad to see your additions for Portuguese. I speak it (imperfectly), my daughter is Brazilian-American, and I have many friends in Brazil (mainly Rio, but also Sao Paulo). I still hope to start doing more work with Portuguese corpora, but haven't found the time recently.

    Welcome William.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any Portugueese under my belt.
    I'm American born and know English and a little bit ot other languages (Spanish, Korean).

    Enjoy!  And WELCOME!
