Q: Qual é a diferença entre dumb e absurd ?
A: Dumb is used to describe a person or thing, or an action performed by them, that was not well thought out (to put it lightly) or something disagreeable, while absurd usually refers to something that is ridiculous. It's also a more sophisticated way to say something is dumb, or unlogical.

Examples using "dumb":

- "This assignment is really dumb."

Examples for absurd:
"The deadline for the next assignment is in 3 days, which is absurd since it was given today."

Q: Qual é a diferença entre dumb down e bastardize ?

Dumb down is to explain something in a simpler way if someone doesn't understand the normal, more complex explanation. If someone is learning your language and they ask you a question, but their grammar or vocab isn't good enough to understand the answer, you can dumb it down and explain it in a simpler way. I don't think it's a particularly polite expression, however.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre dumb e stupid ?
A: Dumb and stupid usually mean the same thing, except that using the word dumb is more childish and not as mean as using stupid. So the speaker is saying that, while this person has a below average intelligence, he's not a total idiot. This person may do or say stupid things, but he doesn't do or say SUPER stupid things.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre dumb e stupid e silly ?
A: Accurately, "dumb" describes someone who is unable to speak = mute -- and many people who are not able to speak (as well as their families and friends) object strongly to the use of "dumb" to mean "stupid".
"stupid" refers to a lack of intelligence, while "silly" is more a lack of forethought, or maybe a lack of life-experience. In my opinion, "stupid" is a stronger insult than "silly".
