Let me ask you a question? When you borrow some money (pega dinheiro emprestado) from a friend. Do you pay him/her back?
Because that’s today’s topic. To pay somebody back is to return the money you borrowed from somebody else. We don’t have a different word for it in Portuguese. We just say pagar. Let’s see the example:
|Thanks for lending me the money. I’ll pay you back at the end of the month.||Obrigado por me emprestar o dinheiro. Eu te pago no fim do mês.|
To pay somebody back also means se vingar or dar o troco.
|Jeff cheated on Lucy and now she payed him back cheating on him with his brother.||Jeff traiu Lucy e agora ela deu o troco nele o traindo com o irmão dele.|
