Drinking mate with friends from a shared hollow gourd (also called a mate in Spanish, or cabaça or cuia in Portuguese) with a metal straw (a bombilla in Spanish, bomba or canudo in Portuguese) is an extremely common social practice in Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and southern Bolivia and Brazil.

 MATE
One guiding idea in MATE is that coding, markup, or annotation of spoken language dialogue and other spoken language corpora may be considered as being done at different annotation levels, such as orthographic transcription, prosody markup, or morpho-syntactic markup, as well as cross-level annotation, such as the markup of prosodic cues to speech acts.
MATE work on phonetic transcription will be specifically designed to support prosodic annotation rather than to solve the myriad of problems involved in the development of more general-purpose coding modules for basic phonemic and phonetic transcription.
MATE will not enforce any specific format onto non-speech data files, but suggests that video/audio follows current standards, and enforces the possibility to refer to video and audio by means of time in milliseconds.
