Hmm, that's more like it... quadlingual, although that would be already a polyglote (or how the h*ck you spell this :p )

Hmmm... pretty strange. In portuguese I'd say it's ok, since '4' is named 'quatro'. But in english?? I mean, Where does 'quad' connects to 'four'? Usually they're descendants.

Uh... just a question (if someone knows)...: why did my rating meter go down a point? Does it have anything to do with the fact that I'm a bit more than a week without posting?

Death Metal: quatro em inglês também é conhecido como "four" ou "quad". nunca ouviu falar dos famosos cdroms "quad-speed"?

Grrrr.... I'll become Asz right now if you say that again, Grrr.... j/k
But, since portugese is derived from latin, I studied that my entire life ;)
