    Cool aa

    Hi,

    There is a tropical fruit from the amazonian forest in Brazil called 'aa' Do you have a translation for it in English? I couldn't find it in any dictionaries.

    Re: aa

    Hi-

    It's called acai in English, too. I think it is pretty new in North American markets (where I live, I've only seen it as an ingredient in fruit juice). There are articles about it from time to time, though, talking about its health benefits.

    Thank you. And do spell it in the same way? Do you also use the acute accent on the 'i'? or do you write it the same as you did? (acai)

    Re: aa

    Hi-

    I've seen it without the accent on the i, but with the cedilla on the c, but I've also seen it spelled without that (so as I spelled in the previous post). I believe in English it's pronounced "ah-SAW-hee".
