Brazilian Slang - Mooch

Folgada (fem. sing.) [pronounced: "foal-gah-dah"] is the slang word for Mooch, according to the informal Portuguese dictionary.

Not this cute & fuzzy kind of Mooch:

...but this kind of mooch:

aka slacker, bum, etc.

Regular Portuguese adjectives are usually shown ending in the masculine singular form (—o). To change it to the feminine singular, substitute the ending "o" for an "a" (—a). For the plural form, just add an "s" ( m. pl: —os) (fem. pl: —as). The gender of the noun that is being qualified determines which gender you should use for the adjective.
