Shhh John, you're risking giving Gavin Menzies ideas for another silly book.

"Mandarin portuguese" – no, no, you're thinking of Macau portuguese, which is more like cantonese portuguese.

I worked on a project in Portugal and one of the other managers there was named Joćo. Sgt Paper has it right, or at least that's how I heard it pronounced.
