So modern Portuguese doesn't really have a way to distinguish "your" from "y'all's" from (theoretically) "his/her".
Whenever I use vosso, native speakers find it weird. :P

Yeah, because it's the vós form, which apparently is archaic, religious, poetic, or limited to dialects spoken in parts of Portugal, which is probably even weirder since you're studying Brazilian Portuguese. :lol:

Yeah, but that's what we use here.

Not the actual personal pronoun or the conjugations, just the possessive and the oblique forms. It's similar to the way people in Brazil use "teu" and "você" in the same sentence.

OK, então a frase “Todos vocês fizeram os vossos trabalhos.” está aceitável?

O presunto não é tão gostoso quando o toucinho. (ou bacon?)

Man, you should try cured hams, like Parma ham, San Daniele ham or Serrano ham.

Ninguém que eu conheça pessoalmente falaria assim, provavelmente repetiria "de vocês".

Cara, você devia experimentar presunto cozido :?: , como presunto Parma, San Daniele ou Serrano.

If the allergy levels are low, then why are we all sneezing?

Se os níveis de alergia são baixos, então porque estamos todos espirrando?
