- Estou cansado desse nhenhenhém dos políticos.
- I’m tired of this whining of the politicians.
TIPS & NOTES
This strange word comes from the Tupi Indian language word nheem which means ‘to talk’. Nhenhenhém is onomatopoeic. If you separate each nhe and then repeat it several times, it really does sound like a lot of blah, blah, blah and somebody complaining in a continuous and annoying way.
