Will the countries use their official names? For example, will North Korea be called Democratic People's Republic of Korea or just North Korea? If that is the case, the Koreas will be in the C section. And the Netherlands are commonly known in Brazil as simply "Holanda". Will they parade with the Ps (for Paises Baixos) or the Hs?

And, other than that, I think that's pretty much it. Gosh, this will take sooooo long XD

It depends - I suppose the Republic of Korea wants to enter under "Korea" - North Korea will emphasise that it is the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea

well - Holland is a province of the Netherlands

it would be comparable when Brazil would enter a stadium under the letter "R" if Brazil was called "Rio de Janeiro" in the hosting country

I spot some mistakes and I'm gonna correct them and post the list in a few minutes. Most of them is spelling. The portuguese language have two official spellings, The Brazilian and The European and some of the countries in the list CAF posted are spelled like they would in Portugal, not Brazil. And there are countries that have more than one usual name in Brazil (Reino Unido and Grã-Bretanha for example and Antígua e Barbuda or Antiga e Barbuda)

If there are 2 versions, like Great Britain's, they would go with Grã-Bretanha since that's a closer match to the IOC's appellation of GBR -- and it's more universally recognized. Besides, the IOC does not recognize it as the United Kingdom (Reino Unido).

Too bad, Brits, you'll be standing much longer. Well, your guys would have had it easy 4 years earlier.

Now, MO, how are the nations going to march in...in Cape Town?? :lol::lol:

I went through CAF list, and made some corrections, both in spelling and alphabetical order. I used the Acordo Ortográfico da Língua Portuguesa de 1990, in other words, the way words are spelt correctly nowadays in both Europeanl and Brazilian variations of the Portuguese language (where it applies because some regional differences between Portugal and Brazil were kept even after the Acordo). If I forgot any country please tell me, I'll put it on the list.

I think they'll go for Reino Unido in this case. We understand that when you use Reino Unido and Grã-Bretanha you can be referring to the nation, but there's a feeling, when you are speaking Brazilian Portuguese, that when you say Grã-Bretanha you are referring to the island itself excluding Northern Ireland which is in another island, then you aren't refeting to the sovereing Country. In fact, Reino Unido's official name can show you the feel of what I am saying, it's more complete : O Reino Unido da Grã-Bretanha e da Irlanda do Norte

Korea will be an odd one. Remember in some recent Olympics, they marched in together. Then I believe they stopped that in Beijing. In some Olympiads, the two Koreas were separated in the march. It will depend on the political situation at the time.

Exaclty! If they are together they will be Coreia. If they are not, they will be Coreia do Norte and Coreia do Sul.

But danny, that was probably only like, what 5,500 seats and I don't think your PAmOG was in it to make money. If they do that for an SOG, that would mean losing revenue for 10,000 PREMIUM seats...and it would be hard for the cameras to keep them in focus. And then what happens after the...they're properly called the Artistic portions? You will have a big empty field there with no one for the cameras to focus on. See, Beijing did such a great job of creating and maintaining a lot of color and movement on the field. NBC would have it no other way.

Hmmm, I only told Brazil made different for the PanAm... I don't believe they will do the same for the SOG...

And I really they don't, since it will be 10,000 seats less to me... I wanna be there!

But, for PanAms they did different, didn't they?

Re PanAms, I don't know...I haven't seen an OC since 1987.

But otherwise, exactly -- less seats for you.

For the winters, since they only have to deal with est. 3,000 athletes, they seat them. I think those 2 traditions will hold.

and what about Russia and Nedherlands ?

Russia in Olympics is presented as Russian Federation, so in portuguese it is: Federação Russa.

Here we used to call Nedherlands as "Holanda", Holland in English, wich is wrong, but this name "Países Baixos" is really ugly, it is something like: "Low Countries" :blink: They should call it "Neerlanda".

"Couaite" and "Hongue Congue"? LOL

I'm Brazilian and I didn't know that...

LOL

This is just crazy. It´s gonna be Kwait and Hong Kong, for fure, and it will be Kosovo, not Kossovo. :lol: Hongue Congue is really funny, if we should write names as we speak it, then it should be Ron Con. :lol:

Henrique, Daniel and Lucas

Instead of saying that I am wrong because you have never seen these countries names being spelt like that, take a look at some good Portuguese dictionary or even at wikipedia. Our language has been butched for years now by the media, mainly because they want to add new anglo therms and people really think that Hong Kong is correct portuguese but it isn't. Couaite and Hongue Conngue are indeed correct Brazilian portuguese and it doesn't take much for you to know.

And Daniel, as far as I am concerned, the three letters KYW were JUST introduced into both variations of the Portuguese language and even if it's allowed to write foreign names with KYW in Portuguese, these countries still do have a PROPER portuguese translation. Let's not keep the butcher work and give a little more value to our language.

And if we are talking about Funny, what do you think about the name Camarões for example??? It's not even a literal translation but yet it's correct portuguese so LETS RESEARCH a little before making fun of your fellow collegue here.
