Everyone loses. The word "abreviação" does not exist in the Portuguese language. At least not in Portugal. It might exist in Brazil where, as I've mentioned, they basically copy the English language and call it Portuguese. Anyway, the correct word is "abreviatura".

Next word: Estrado

Meaning in English:
  • Road
  • Dais
  • None of the above
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Almost forgot: the word "abreviatura" is pronounced thusly:
uh-bre-v[1]-uh-too-ra
As always, the "r" pronunciation is a bit off, due to the way it's pronounced in English, but it should be sufficient.
 1. As in the letter "v".

Road. Or straight.
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

Everyone loses. According to Wikipedia (I checked the article itself, but I also used Wikipedia as a sort of translator, as I had no idea what it was called in English), it's a "dais".

Next word: Exclusive

Meaning in English:
  • Excluding
  • Exclusive
  • The first and second options
  • None of the above

Bumper cars.
I just wanted to note that I'm going to add the following option: "Word does not exist". It may or may not be the correct answer for the next word, as I haven't come up with it yet.

Everyone loses. The correct answer was "Excluding". Let me explain:
When we (in Portuguese) say, for example, "How many integers are there between 1 and 3, excluding 3?", we say "Quantos números inteiros há entre 1 e 3, exclusive?". "Exclusive" means that the last thing we said is excluded.
"Exclusive" is pronounced thusly:
eish-cloo-z[1]-veh
"Inclusive" is the opposite of "inclusive" and is pronounced thusly:
im[2]-cloo-z[3]-veh

This next word is probably going to be my last.

Next word: A

Meaning in English:
  • A
  • An
  • The (female)
  • The first and second options
  • Word does not exist
  • None of the above
 1. As in the letter "z", as pronounced by USA citizens.
 2. As if you were pronouncing "important", sans the "portant".
 3. As in the letter "z", as pronounced by USA citizens.

word does not exist, it seems too short...

OAA - If this is your last I just want to say thanks for the game, I've enjoyed playing.

I'll take a wild guess and say "none of the above". The word is not too short. The word "a" in English is certainly proof of that. And while it might mean something similar in Portugese (as in the first options), I'm going to guess that it actually means something more like "to" as in other languages.

Oh, and I've enjoyed the game as well :) Thanks.

"Inclusive" is the opposite of "inclusive"
<snip>

Obviously this was a typo. The second "inclusive" should read "exclusive".

Everyone loses. The word "a" is an article and means "the (female)". It's pronounced as "uh".

Next word: Massa

Meaning in English:
  • Mass (the inherent property of any particle)
  • Mass (the religious ceremony)
  • Any kind of uncooked pasta
  • The first and second options
  • The first and third options
  • Word does not exist
  • None of the above
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.

Everyone loses. The correct answer was "The first and third options".

We call "massa" any kind of pasta, such as spaghetti, lasagna layer-separator-thingies, fusilli, tagliatelle, and so on. It's also the term for the property inherent to any particle (mass). The religious term is "missa".
