“cê” = você (you).
“tá” = está (second person, singular, verb to be –   ESTAR)
Pra onde cê vai? (Where do you go?)
Eu vou pra farmácia (I go to the pharmacy)
“pra” = para or para a (to/for the)
Cê tá em casa? (Are you at home?)
“tô” = estou (first person, singular, verb to be – ESTAR)
Tamos em casa agora. (We are at home now)
“tamos” = estamos (third person, plural, verb to be – ESTAR)
Vou pro supermercado (I go to the supermarket)
