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.
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!
Thank you, Jason and James.
Obrigado, Jason. Agora você tem mais um amigo em São Paulo.
