The art of breathing – Opinion


But even more than language purists, I hate those who are busy correcting in public, with a professorial air, the spelling mistakes of others. Those who use social networks get themselves into complications and embarrassing situations.

I HATE IT LIKE YOU you have no idea, the language purists. Those who look to Portuguese only from Portugal and turn it into an object of worship (for them, Portuguese from Portugal should remain unchanged through the centuries, as in the time of medieval religious dances).

If I stubbornly drag the previous agreement with me, it is not out of fidelity or an oath of faith to its principles, it is only because my laziness is stronger and more constant than my desire to put the new spelling into practice.

Think what you want, but our identity is also how we learn to read, write and look at words. And at this point and at this hour, when I’ve already passed the equator of my life, it’s hard for me to say goodbye to what I was and no longer am.
