Pronunciation[edit]

Pronoun[edit]

vocês

  1. you (plural, informal and semi-formal)

Usage notes[edit]

  • Originally simply the plural of "você" and, thus, used in semi-formal speech, this pronoun has now replaced "vós" in virtually all of the Portuguese-speaking areas and is now used as both the plural of "tu" (familiar) and "você" (semi-formal).
  • It takes third person plural verbs.
