    • 1842, Juan Manuel Pintos, Meu querido pai:
      As nosas mulleres
      Subamos de prezo
      Que, ê muito travallo
      È dor mui doente
      Botar á este mundo
      Hum miniño inteiro.
      Com’elas s’estrican,
      Cómo se escrequenan
      Como dan gemidos
      Choros è lamentos,
      Como à côr do rostro
      Toda van perdendo
      È agre bocado
      Qu’a calquer pon medo.
      Our women's
      price we should rise
      because it is hard work
      and aching pain
      to throw to this world
      a whole baby.
      How they stretch,
      how they crouch,
      How they wail,
      cry and lament,
      How the face colour
      they lose entirely.
      It's a sour mouthful
      that makes anyone scared.
    Synonym: acedo
