Assunto:  The Ricardos of Brazil
 
Mensagem:  Hello you all, I was just wondering how many Ricardos you guys know in Brazil. He is very enlightened about languages' dynamics and their functional aspects. It seems like everybody is so preoccupied with grammar, stylistics, and so on as opposed to being focused on the functional aspects of the language, content, that is. A perfect example, is a Brazilian I met recently in Providence who's a newcomer who happens to claim to know "tudo sobre a gramatica". Yet, when it comes to actual fluency, he performs poorly. Whenever he tries to speak, he'd worry more about the grammar and style than content, even in the most informal conversations. I wonder if this is typical in Brazil. -Miguel Vieira
