Wow, didn't expect these two to be the same as Brazilian Portuguese, they looked so regional... :hmm:

(except being 'manha' instead of 'maña')

Sim, ninguém nem usa a palavra 'tenacidade'.

Geralmente isso é associado a esportes. Exemplo: http://www.thomasnelson.com.br/livro/li ... e-sucesso/

Any very small family-run or self-run business; a small shop or store, a street vendor's stall or stand, etc. A larger store, a franchise or shop belonging to a company would not be a changarro.

(fr) à/de confesse - to/from confession

This is a fixed phrase; the noun confesse is always preceded by either à or de. The stand-alone word for "confession" is just that, confession.
