Assunto:  Before died?
 
Mensagem:  Márcio, you remind me of a story I heard years ago.  A Dutch gentleman was talking about a dogfight during World War II against a German opponent.  He said,

"De fokker came at me out of de sun!"
His listener replied, "Fokker?  I thought Fokkers were only flown during World War I."
And the Dutch pilot answered, "Nee, nee!  Dis fokker was flying a Messerschmidt!"

(dogfight = combat between two fighter airplanes)

In written work, typos happen.  In speech, lots of things happen!
