Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Moment"

The meaning of "Moment" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa I'm not suggesting for one moment that these changes will be easy.?
A: @namnamNAMUL: the person means that he/she thinks the changes will be hard, and definitely doesn't want you to think it's easy
Q: O que significa that moment when you're charging your phone and the lights go out?
A: Do you mean a blackout?
Q: O que significa i'm having a moment. ?
A: @Grat: Well, it can mean a lot of things...

Example: Imagine going to your boyfriend's/girlfriend's house and then you see them with another boy/girl. You would feel very depressed and probably go back home.. If someone saw that you were really heartbroken than they would ask "What Happened?" or "Are you okay?". You would probably respond "I'm having a moment."

Example 2: If you were with the one you like and you almost kiss them, but someone interrupts you would probably say "I'm having a moment!! "

So overall, you would say this based on your emotions. 😄 Good Luck! 👍

Q: O que significa At moment just beautiful Dream!?
A: Hmm, my guess is it was supposed to be "At the moment it's just a beautiful dream" which you might translate as 今のところ美しい夢だけです。 Sorry my Japanese isn't too good.

Example sentences using "Moment"

Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com 1) In that moment... 2) At that moment....
A: “The man proposed to his girlfriend after dinner. In that moment, he felt worried that she would say no.”

“The girl saw how difficult the boy’s life was. At that moment, she realized not everyone was as fortunate as her.”

“The woman tried skydiving for the first time. In that moment, she felt a rush of adrenaline.”

I don’t really notice a difference between the two phrases. The only thing I can think of is that “in that moment” feels like a slightly longer period of time than “at that moment”. (This is not an official rule, it’s just how I usually use these phrases.)
Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com at any given moment.
A: It just means something at any point in time, it could happen in 1 second or 1 hour or 1 day or even 1 year, you just don't know when.

Synonyms of "Moment" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre she could be arriving at any moment. e she would be arriving at any moment. e she should be arriving at any moment. ?
A: first sentence implies there is a good chance, but you aren't sure. Second sentence you know she will be arriving.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre "The moment the fight starts" e "The moment when the fight starts" ?
A: I don't think there's any difference in meaning; the moment is a time, so you can say when, but it's also clear without it; I think the sentence without "when" is more common. Connecting words like that are often left out when they are clear from context:

That's the place I parked my car.
That's the place where I parked my car.

I think he is crazy.
I think that he is crazy.

That's the guy I saw at the beach.
That's the guy whom I saw at the beach.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre at the moment e for the moment ?
A: at the moment = 今
for the moment = とりあえず

What are you doing now? = 今なにやってんの?
I'm a little busy at the moment = 今ちょっと忙しいよ

Are you alive? = 生きている?
Yes, for the moment. = とりあえずはね。(今のうち)

for the moment =~ for the time being =~ for now.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre at the moment e in the moment e at present ?
A: I think "at the moment" and "at present" are the same, they are used to decribe an action happening now. For example, "I am typing a comment at the moment" or "I am typing a comment at present". The main difference is that "at present" is used for more formal situations, like "Mr. White is in a business meeting at present".

"In the moment" is kind of hard to explain. It's used to mean embracing what is happening at a specific time. So, for example, "I was really in the moment" means I was really focused on what I was doing then and not thinking about ANYTHING else, but it's not used that commonly compared to the other two expressions.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Can you spare a moment? e Can you wait for a moment? ?
A: You would say "Can you spare a moment" if you want to talk to someone who is busy. You would say "Can you wait for a moment" when you have to do something and you want someone to wait for you while you do it. I hope that makes sense!
