Mensagem:  It can be. But in Portuguese the form 'Ele há que fazer isso', for example, has disappeared. The most used form is TER + QUE or DE + INFINITIVE. In this case, the verb 'ter' acts as an auxiliary verb. It's just like 'have to' in English. In the same way, in Brazil we use for the more-than-perfect past tense (pretérito mais-que-perfeito) the verb TER (imperfect past) + PARTICIPLE OF THE VERB instead of the form RADICAL OF THE VERB + (A / E / I) RA. Example: Ele tinha mordido X Ele mordera.
