Mensagem: 

I heard recently that "côr" has become "cor", and "rosa" can be used in place of the longer "cor/côr de rosa".  True or false? 

 

 

   Not yet, Dale.

   But, hold a second...

   To say the truth, never ever was this usage in vogue in Brazil but in Portugal it´s likely.

So if you talked with a Portuguese I will don´t say that it has become; but if a Brazilian said so, he/she is not well informed on the subject.

   As for "cor de rosa" and "rosa", you can use them both without risking being misinterpreted, I mean, when you are talking about colour.

  

   Lots of luck, you´re welcome.
