Mensagem:  Senhor Andre Costa, I noticed you said in your reply to Pat that "we can't argue with a native". Well, I would say otherwise. The fact is that you CAN argue with a native speaker in most cases. Believe it or not, most natives don't know how to articulate the basic aspects of their language. Non-natives, however, are usually very good at articulating how a language works-a foreign language, that is. Don't assume that just because someone is a native speaker that he or she knows how to articulate the mechanics of his/her language. -Miguel Vieira
