Mensagem:  Ouvi esta reportagem ontem, é muito interessante. A autora do livro comenta os diferentes usos da palavra 'like' no inglês americano falado. ------------------- Evading the Question, in English NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Maggie Balistreri, author of the The Evasion English Dictionary. The book describes the use of language to evade speaking directly. Balistreri defines the many subtly different ways Americans pepper our speech with euphemisms and oblique references. Audio is available at: http://www.npr.org/features/feature.php?wfId=1492121 (Clink on the 'All Things Considered audio' link) ------------------- I hope you enjoy. -Wagner
