I kind of doubt that. I think this origins from Germany, since lots of German people moved to Brazil a long time ago. The dots are called umlaut in German and make the u sound like a long u, other than the German u without dots, which sounds like the oo in boom. The u with umlaut sounds like umm... well imagine you are about to whistle. Take the shape of your lips in that case and don't blow, but make a sound. That's how you get

here, the two dots are called TREMA. with the trema, you pronouce the letter. for example, QUO *thats not a word in portuguse, but, cummon*, with trema, would be QO, so you would pronouce like KU- O *altogether*


is the same in german? i mean, the use of trema?


all i know is that her name IS bin tchen. hahaha im a bitchy girl.

Well everyone here in Europe as far as I know says it like I said, but what ever :p
And no, trema and umlaut are two different things. Umlaut is something that makes the sound of a vowl go longer and smoother, which is unique to the German language. Trema sepperates the sound of two vowls which could be melted into one sound without the use of trema. Like ou could be pronounced as oo in boom and u would be pronounced as o-u. Melted and sepperated

Languages are amazing!!

Ok, let's put it like that: If you were german, we'd both win, becouse she's half brazilian half german, but you're not, and as I'm brazilian, I WON!! mwhahaha


hahahaha just kidding So, lets say the pronounce of her name is regional. Different regions, different, pronounces. But what counts is the SHE says it. As I said, i'll pay attention. But im pretty sure is like the way i said it is.
