Mensagem:  PP, thank you for your insightful comments.

Indeed, if Ruy Barbosa lived in our days and learned how today's speakers of Portuguese deal with language, he'd die again. Of a massive heart attack, I guess.

Well, we'd see a Ruy Barbosa walking in dismay back to his old grave in the cemetery wondering what the hell did they do to my language, for God's sake.

You know what? If RB resolved to lash out back at all the language manglers, he'd literaly throw at them every one of his thick books. Only then, I guess, would a satisfied RB drag his bare bones back into his waiting coffin. Let's have a cup of coffin.
