5.0 von 5 Sternen The funniest book you will ever own 3. November 2005
Von Jeremy M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I know that it is not politically correct to make fun of foreigners who can't read or write English (unless they're from Texas), nor should we laugh at their resultant manglings.

But what about foreigners who deliberately set out to write an English guidebook for Portugese-speakers and get it all kinds of wrong. After all, they kind of ask for it, right?

Especially if those translators spoke NO English...

And did not have an English-Portugese dictionary...

Well, I think that's probably OK to laugh at. And laugh at it you will. The entries are so mangled they're almost poetry. I also enjoyed the fact that, since it is a 19th century book, it deals with those extremely odd arcane things, like bedwarmers and used horses.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Correction on the author 12. April 2005
Von Just Like That Bluebird - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Just a quick note on a common error publishers make about the author of this book. They credit it (as here) to both Jose da Fonseca and Pedro Carolino, but actually Pedro Carolino wrote it. Jose da Fonseca was the person who wrote the Portuguese/French Dictionary Carolino consulted. Small detail, but that's where the devil is, right?

Enjoy this hilarious book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What a crazy concept - a classic for fans of the truly unusual 7. Januar 2006
Von Dom Miliano - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Like a Seinfeld or I Love Lucy sitcom episode, the idea that you could write a book about the English language without being able to speak it - side splitting. I heard about this book on NPR and sought it for years. The hard cover was back ordered for a very long time so when the soft cover came my way, I grabbed it and went to the bath..err library. Funny stuff. Ironic, laughable, really silly and unique.

If you collect unusual literature, love humor or just need a laugh - give this book a read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pardoning Fonseca 4. März 2007
Von S. Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
There is a short article in the March-April 2007 issue of Mental Floss magazine which expands a bit on "Original Cowgirls" explanation. According to the article, Fonseca was a legitimate scholar whose language guides weren't "lost in translation". Nineteen years after the publication of Fonseca's Portugese-French guide, Carolino did a poor translation and included Fonseca's name in the title

5.0 von 5 Sternen Comedy at its peak 13. Januar 2010
Von Ricardo A. T. Carvalh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
First, let me say that I am a native Portuguese speaker and that I understand English very well (though my writing skills are not that good, I ask you to comment this review if you see any grammatical error), this book is a classic, it's so funny that people in the metro thought that I was mad because of the loud laughs, that said, I recommend someone to have a passable reading ability in some romance language to fully enjoy this book, if portuguese is a problem for you could try to learn to read in some other language, specially spanish that is closer to portuguese, catalan, italian or french will do if you're good with languages and have a portuguese dictionary.
