Mensagem:  José Roberto,
I think that nobody has the born-right to determinate the rights and wrongs of a given language, but only if it is appropriate/acceptable or not. A language is like a human being that changes as time goes by and, despite the efforts of many, it can not be bound by nobody, and follows a path oh its own.
The changes of language are not fast and, sometimes, can not even be perceived by one or two generations. I am not talking about expressions, but structure. I had a teacher that used to say that some rules created were only a matter of preference of some person that has decided so in the beginning of the 20th Century. I think he is not totally wrong. What do you think?
And, concerning Brazilian X European Portugueses, there are some researches that already consider Brazilian Portuguese as being a different language from European Portuguese. Take a look at the number of works specifically about Brazilian Portuguese in any Linguistics database.
Regards,
Maria Valeska
