EP words of the week (#36): crípton (e outros elementos químicos)

If Chemistry was your Kryptonite in school, then beware of this post! It’s going to be full of it!

As I’ve discussed several times before, the changes between EP and BP are not all that many (at least at face-value, or in comparison with different languages), but they do add to a still substantial whole when you look at it with time (which is sort of my job here); I keep running into new words I’ve never heard about or remembering BP words that don’t exactly match our own, which is both exciting and daunting in equal measure (no wonder we don’t understand each other sometimes!).

The same is true when it comes to chemical elements; different translations, spelling conventions and phonetics mean we have different words for the exact same ideas.

s13
Crípton: o gás, não o planeta. Krypton: the gas, not the planet.

A list of chemical elements (ordered by atomic number) and their translations to EP and BP will follow after the jump . Most chemical elements are masculine in Portuguese, so I’ll only add the article to the ones that are feminine. With the rest, just picture the correct article – [o] – behind them as you read (:
