Mensagem:  For what grammar rules seem worth, Brazilian Portuguese language grammar manuals have adopted a lenient or non-orthodox approach to, or eventually resolved to incorporate, street speech as a sine qua non asset without which they would probably get a lot of dust while rotting on the country's (forsaken) library book racks.

If IBGE ever thought of doing a grammar book census it would soon discover very few homes actually bought one. Or none. Who'd get a kick out of reading a thick grammar book in a single sitting anyway? Can grammar rules do anything to correct carefree, laid-back street speech? What does a poster like me ask such questions for? Go figure...
