The “sorting” of expression gives a triple sense of intensity and makes the expression explicit, no matter where you live, after all, cool is good, twice cool is great, imagine three times? Number means three times. The one presented is a crude slang taken from a song by Cleyton and Cleydir, by the gauchos, called Tri-legal. The origin of this is from the three times when the national player (a local football team) conquered the Brazilian championship, the last time was in the 70s meaning of sorting massa: gaucho slang, which means very cool!! The word tri© is often used in various situations in southern Brazil. But what does she mean by that? “Bah tchê, congratulations! Sort out cool what you did. » 1. Legal sorting. Gaucho slang has been used to define something that is much more than legal. The party was really cool!!! An expression of astonishment or admiration used by gauchos. Like bah, diminutive of barbarism and tchê, word inherited from the Tupi-Guarani Indians, which means “mine”. It would be like saying, but what barbarism on my part. Bah tchê, but what a beautiful drop this black bog head. This is one of the most popular expressions in the south of our country.
This is certainly a sign of the people of this region and identifies the gaucho wherever it is. *BAH*: Initially, it is the reduced expression of “barbarism”, used as “but this barbarism”. Over time, it has been used for any type of expression, with only the highlight tone changing in each case. It replaces the word “many”, but can also mean legal (usually “legal” follows “sorting”). It can also be accompanied by a lot. Very sorted this thing. The party was really cool. The slang used by young people means nice, kind, good, beautiful, very cool. American living/teaching English in Brazil here. One of my students introduced me to the expression “legal sorting”, which is used in the southern states and means “big”! You use it when you see a cool car, someone doing something impressive, etc. A really cool or funny thing can also be used as “very mass” that has the same meaning. Slang that means something really cool – “our mass car!!! Tri Snid has nothing to do with football! The real tri no rs story, only I know, appeared in the days of discos! Hi, Amara.
We very much appreciate your comment. As we said in the post, the relationship between slang and football is limited to time and has made it easier for people from another region to diameninate. But it was important to have this signage on discos. Let`s do more research on this. Thank you very much! I wonder how this phrase is translated literally and what are its origins? As far as I know, it literally translates to “triple cool,” and someone told me it was an old expression from the 70s. From generation to generation, the use of words reinforces the identity of the gaucho people. There is no doubt that every gaucho used the terms “sort”, “bah” and “tchê”, but does everyone know where they come from? In the 70s, Brazil won the World Cup for the third time and Internacional (Porto Alegre team) won the Campeonato Brasileiro for the third time. The information I had is that at one point, many gauchos (peasants` children) went to France to exchange, and when they returned, they brought trejeitos from there, and thus even the glory of the darlings. But sorting would be an abrasileirization of the French word tré.
Example: very chic. Hello friends! About the slang TRI, Google, “I created the sort”. Thank you very much! Edit – There is this famous song about Porto Alegre, with a lot of local slang, Deu Pra Ti (“I`m done with you” / “So long”), which contains sorting twice: The word tri can usually have two meanings. Anyway, thank you again, no one here could give me such a good answer. The word tri is often used in various situations in southern Brazil. But what does that mean? As this expression is a local slang from the South, the translation is exactly three times cool, I can`t say the origin since I come from the Southeast. In Brazil, we have special words for people or teams who win a particular competition more than once. Oh, look at this!!! This information is very interesting and quite logical! There are regions with certain expressions that appear more frequently, but that convey a very strong identity, an originality that deviates from simplicity. Tchê is a common interjection in Rio Grande do Sul. There is no doubt about its origin. It comes from the Spanish “che”, which is spoken in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay. The tchê is therefore a variant of “che”, derived from the form of grafar in Portuguese, as pronounced in Spanish, as if it had a “t” and with the “e” closed.
That would translate to “cool, cool, cool,” like Abed from the TV show community. The origin of the word triz is not peaceful, which means “almost nothing, something tiny, insignificant”. When I see all the answers, I`m disappointed, hahaha, I thought it came from the French “very”, which means “many”, and they basically use it as gauchos tri:very good, very cool, etc. use. It is short for “barbarism”. It is currently the most versatile expression in Brazil.
