How to insult in Portuguese?

Whether we like it or not, Portuguese insults are part of the language. In fact, a study of recorded conversations in all languages all over the world proved that between 80-90 words a person says per day (0.5% – 0.7% of all words used) swear words. Our intention in this lesson is not to encourage you to insult in Portuguese, but to become familiar with some abusive words that native speakers commonly use in the daily life
