It is used in the south of Brazil, usually in Rio Grande do Sul.
It means a lot of different things, but it's normally used to refer to a person.


Mas báh, TCHE, tu viu que sol lindo que está fazendo hoje?
Presta atenção no que eu estou falando, TCHE.
TCHE! ( in this case, the expression is used only to give emphasis to what you are saying. It's basically suitable for every situation)

Usually used by young people, "Deitar" is used as a verb. It actually means lie down, but it can be used when talking about a really good performance on a test, presentation or a game. For exemple: You just finish a test, and your friend asks how did you go on the test, if you're sure you got a A you can say "Deitei na prova".


Person1 - Como foi a apresentação do trabalho?
Person2 - Deitei!

Person1 - Está preparado para a prova?
Person2 -Vou deitar nessa prova!

In old times it used to be a bad thing to be over a certain age and single. The same used to be true in Brazil, and this expression designated these women over 20 or 30 as "titias" (aunts).

Nowadays it's still used to tease someone, specially older sisters that are single but with younger sister/brothers (or even most of her friends) that have already married.

The direct translation would be "stay for aunt" or "become an aunt". That doesn't make much sense in Portuguese if not used as an expression.


- Desse jeito vai ficar pra titia hein?

- Se sua irmã não arrumar um namorado logo ela vai ficar pra titia.
