Right and wrong in English: linguistic bias in action
With all its faults, quirks and inconsistencies, the English language is often praised for having no supreme authority to curtail her freedom. Otto Jespersen, a Danish linguist, used to compare the French formal gardens severe and Louis XIV and made the contrast with the English language as it was "... a garden planted apparently without any planning, leaving you free to wander at his own pleasure-without worrying about any evil-looking guard imposing strict regulations. "
Linguistic Prejudice: politician against the "split infinitive"
Even so, and despite contrary opinions, many of the rules formulated and perpetuated by "guardians" are still in force. After all, they occupy positions of enormous influence, universities, newspapers, magazines etc. Anyone who dares to challenge them, especially in academia and literary, runs the risk of being labeled ignorant, as they say, use the "correct" English is the factor that separates the elite from the rabble. See how far you can get this kind of prejudice. In the 1980s, the Jock Bruce-Gardyne politician, British Conservative Party, was appointed Secretary of the Treasury. Any correspondence to be sent to him and had the misfortune of containing a split infinitive was immediately set aside and summarily returned to the sender without being read.
Linguistic Prejudice: newspaper against “ain’t”
These controversies would inevitably flow into the lap of the editors of dictionaries. What position should take? They should follow the rules dictated, or simply describe, without taking sides, how language is actually used? One of the best examples of descriptive school is the 1961 edition of Webster's Third New International Dictionary whose editor, Philip Gove, was of the opinion that distinctions in language use were artificial and elitist. The result was the inclusion of many words and expressions that the "guardians" disapproved.
Probably what caused the biggest scandal was the inclusion of the word Is not (contraction of am not, is not, are not, or even has not and have not) with the observation that is used in many parts of the United States. A good example is the first talkie, The Jazz Singer, 1927, in which the singer Al Jolson stated, the greatest joy: "You is not heard nothing 'yet." To dismay of purists, the phrase was all wrong (besides the word Is not it contained a double negative and should be "You have not heard anything yet"), but it reflected the English of many in the audience.
Uses of contraction "Is not"
In The Story of Language, Mario Pei comments Is not the fact that it became common in the time of King Charles II, ie some 300 years ago, but no one knows exactly where the "guardians" to declare "illegal" . Nobody doubts that the phrase I Is not it much easier to pronounce than I aren't or I amn't and sounds much more natural than I am not.
But the prejudice of the "guardians" and his followers have kept the word outside the privileged circle of standard Inglês. The New York Times was so furious with the new Webster who decided never to use it and said it would continue to use the 1934 edition. The folly not gone blank. The writer, as well as "guardian", Bergen Evans was forced to declare: "Someone who, in 1962, solemnly announces that on issues of use of the English language, will be guided by a dictionary of 1934 is talking nonsense, while ignorant and pretentious. "

The English in America: how the English language in the United States avenged
While all recognize that American society was polyglot, nobody questioned the fact that English was by far the most important of all languages spoken in the country. This was made clear in the first census, done in 1790. From a total of 4 million Americans surveyed, 90% were descendants of English settlers. So it was not adopt or not English, the other question was: what kind of English would better serve the new country ... "the language of the former oppressor rancid ..." as some said, or an Englishman more consistent with the spirit of freedom and hope that everyone felt in the air? In the words of John Adams, American English would be an English improved and perfected to serve and that the new republic could spread their ideals silent apart. "The day will come that the greatest honor to the English will be to imitate the Americans," Adams said with great pride.
In fact, the English as "mother tongue" was already a fait accompli considered, so much so that the idea of an official language was not among the concerns of the founders of the country, the so-called Founding Fathers - the subject is not even mentioned in the Constitution . The only question was referring to the changes that the language could suffer in the future. In the opinion of Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, American English would probably become a language other than English European well as to be considered a separate language. Franklin went further and warned of the danger of fragmenting the country in various communities, each with its own language.
For a brief moment, the numbers seemed to confirm the prophecy of Benjamin Franklin, but the dynamism and diversity of American society not allowed. Until 1840, North America had received an average of 20,000 immigrants per year, most coming from two places - the slaves came from Africa, from Europe came mostly English, Scottish and Irish. The total number of immigrants between 1607 and 1840 is estimated at about 1 million. Since that time until the late nineteenth century, entered the country more than 30 million immigrants and the pace was faster still in the early twentieth century.
Immigrants arriving at Ellis Island, in 1902
In several localities of America was common to find communities with language itself. There were Germans in Wisconsin and Indiana, the Norwegians in Minnesota and the Dakotas, Nebraska Swedes and many others. With all these ethnic pockets, not natural that the country would disintegrate in a variety of regional languages and in Europe? Or at least that English is split into various dialects, each reflecting the culture of the immigrant group? Neither happened - quite the contrary, the American people speaks English fairly even taking into account the extent of the country.
There are several explanations for such uniformity. The first, and most obvious, is the constant movement of the population, a typical American restlessness, up and down the continent or across the country from ocean to ocean (from coast to coast como se costuma dizer). This unrest led to a constant interaction between so many nationalities that the positive effect was to bring them together instead of separating them. This prevented the formation of dialects. There regionalisms, of course, but nothing too deep. And finally, the social and economic pressures and the desire to participate in a national identity, meant that people naturally adopt a standard form of language. Newcomers felt, and still feel the need to be part of the central stream of American life, the mainstream, recognizing that one factor always appears in the very first plan: the dominance of the English language. Otherwise, they risked being seen as alienated what, in many cases, was, and still is, synonymous with discrimination.

It's what some linguists to explain what is happening, and give examples: many of the expressions censored by "guardians" comes from Shakespeare's time, and even before, but were not lucky enough to be included in the linguistic patterns of the layers with power economic, intellectual or political. Even today, the English teachers find themselves obliged to censor expressions like:
aks a question (asks a question – faz uma pergunta);
workin’ (working – trabalhando);
ain’t (am not, is not, are not, has not, have not, etc. – não sou, não é, não são, não tem, não têm etc.);
I don’t see nothing (I don’t see anything – Não vejo nada);
he don’t (he doesn’t – ele não…);
them things (those things – essas coisas);
we was (we were – eramos, fomos);
and conjugations in the past such as:
drug instead of dragged (arrastar),
seen (saw – ver),
clumb (climbed – galgar, subir),
drownded (drowned – afogar),
growed (grew – crescer, cultivar) and many others.
More Arbitrariness of the "Guardians" of English
The "guardians" take advantage of discrepancies and traditional secular English language to justify the oddities who wish to impose and perpetuate. Examples abound, as Richard Lederer says in Crazy Inglês:
"Today we speak, but we first spoke, some faucets leak, but never loke. Today we write, but first we wrote, we bite our tongues, but never strike. "
A playful way to expose the problem. Infinitive verbs have the same ending, but in the past there is a festival of inconsistencies:'s past speak is not speaked, but the past of leak is leaked, not loke. And if today we write , but yesterday we wrote , why today we bite but yesterday we bit instead of boat? For these and others that the "guardians" are with the right to interfere in the name of order and logic, and thus justify their own existence.
The tendency of English over the centuries is to simplify. So it would not be surprising that "he do not" was recognized as the standard, accompanying her cousins, the contractions I do not, you do not, we do not, etc.. Nothing like that. Purists insist on so he does not. Another example is the verb to be in the past. If you say I ate, you ate, he / she ate (eu comi, tu comeste, ele/ela comeu), in which only the subject changes, because I can not tell you was, you was, he / she was? You can not. The default is I was, you were, he / she was? Why? No one knows.
Youse - You
None of the "guardians" questions the fact that Standard English does not distinguish you from the singular plural you. Previously, there was a second person singular, thou, thou eatest as in (you eat). Today both forms are simply you. But the necessity of distinction still exists. That's why you often hear in non-standard English words y'all (contraction of you all) and youse, meaning "you", which in the opinion of many is superior to standard English. Incidentally, y'all is quite common in the southern United States. At the opening of the Olympic Games in Atlanta, there was a huge sign that read How y'all doin '? meaning "How are you all?" (How are you all doing?). For the following errors, purists must have been wanting to play in the Olympic cauldron.
But even most critics agree that the existence of standards is more than reasonable to facilitate communication, not only spoken but especially writing. The standard English is only one among several types of English, but it is what sets the standards and is taught in schools and language courses. And hence arises a problem for foreign students. Is that the standard English not always reflect the everyday language of the native speaker, whether in grammar or in pronunciation, which puts the stranger in the strange position of knowing the rules, but after years of study, continue feeling an alien when exposed the language spoken in the street.
This dilemma has been amply demonstrated by the linguist Noam Chomsky. He proved that you can speak of a more "correct" and lose the spirit of speech: communication. Moreover, you can kill all the grammar rules and communicate beautifully. And gives the famous example in which grammatical perfection leads to a perfect zero in meaning: Colorless green ideas sleep furiously (ideias verdes sem cor dormem furiosamente).

The English in America: Language arrival in the New World
In the colonization of the New World, the English joined the private sector, but not for love - was for convenience, even. The parties have treated this union only join the useful to the useful; romantic and enjoyable adventures transatlantic not fit in that relationship. But there was no alternative. On the one hand, what would be the natural sponsor of colonization, the English Crown, practically lived in penury and depended on the moods of a parliament stingy. Attempts to unofficial courtier, poet and explorer Sir Walter Raleigh had made it clear that the process of colonization of the lands beyond the seas was a highly risky business. Even so, certain segments of society were more than eager to leave the stifling environment of old Britain. Their reasons varied, but were either economic or religious, all came packaged properly in the dream of a new world and supposedly better. And so it was that the English ventured across the Atlantic, duly employed by private companies.
This explains why most of the English colonies in the early seventeenth century, as Jamestown (1607), Plymouth (1620) and Massachusetts Bay (1628), began as warehouses whose owners were English merchants whose "employees" were simple employees, headed by a "governor" accountable to absentee landlords in England. One thing, however, was taken for granted: any British colony would be governed by English law and the liberties of the citizen would be guaranteed. The first Royal Charter was granted by King James I to the Virginia Company in 1606, the collective name of two companies, the Plymouth Company and the London Company. The document made it clear that the settlers and their descendants would enjoy "... all freedoms ... to all intents and purposes as if they were living or were born in the kingdom of England." These principles have become slogans and fighting in the 1770s.
Little did the English colonization of the New World would be the initial step of its long journey toward globalization. From a language invaded would now be the language attacker and his fate linguistic amalgam, previously limited to England, would become effective at the four corners of the earth. That destiny began to manifest so that the first passengers stepped on the Mayflower for the first trip into the unknown.
When the ship sailed from Plymouth on September 6, 1620, there were people coming from about 30 locations spread throughout the kingdom, each with its own peculiar way of speaking, both in accent and in grammar. For most of those people probably this was the first contact with other varieties of the language. Gradually, the long association of the Mayflower made floating in a cauldron that merged the British regional differences of language: the voices and minds of East Anglia mingled with Devon, Kent and Yorkshire to give American English. So when the slogans and battle cries were given in the New World in the 1770s against the excesses of the British Parliament and the Crown, the language was still the same but the voice was another.

The English in America: similarities and differences between British English and American English
The relative uniformity of American English in a country as vast presented a marked contrast to the many varieties of British English. The leveling process started in Mayflower continued uninterrupted after many years, which has led several scholars to attempt an explanation. In 1828, James Fenimore Cooper wrote, addressing a group of Englishmen: "In America, there is no dialect of English, although we note certain peculiarities in the states and provinces, and even in tone in pronunciation and use of certain words . An American can distinguish between a native of the state of Georgia and one of New England thing you (the English who headed Cooper) will not succeed. "
But as we speak American English in the United States, let us forget that there is another North American English: Canadian. Being so close to the U.S. English, it is sometimes classified by some scholars as a variety of English neighbor, an idea rejected by Canadians of course, because he has suffered influences other than those of the country. Canadian English Canadian French coexists with more than 230 years, as well as a large number of indigenous languages, such as Cree, the Iroquois and Inuit Inuktitut, and immigrant languages like Italian and Ukrainian.
The first English settlers in Canada were actually American colonists come from New England who occupied territories in the provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick on the coast. But the English colonization began in earnest after many years as a result of the American Revolution. Many of those who supported the British against the revolutionaries were forced to leave the country - some went to England and other places, but most fled to Canada where he occupied the territory now known as Ontario. The connection with the United States, therefore, comes from far.
In general terms, the pronunciation of Canadian English is very similar to American English, but the presence of British English still noticeable. An American visitor in Canada, upon arrival, will surprise the Canadian English as being quite British, particularly in vocabulary (eg, words tap, braces and porridge instead of faucet, suspenders and oatmeal (torneira, suspensórios e mingau de aveia). On the other hand, will find an English Canadian extremely Americanized when you hear the words gas, truck and wrench instead of petrol, lorry and spanner (gasolina, caminhão e chave inglesa). However, in terms grammarians, Canadian no different from British or American.
This characteristic of adopting some other things English and American is explained by scholars as a manifestation of the struggle for identity against two very strong influences. Ultimately, what can be seen is the overwhelming desire of the Canadian people to talk more befitting an Englishman with his experience, which certainly does not mean speaking as an American, not as a Briton.
But the truth is that certain general characteristics of pronunciation near the Canadian American. For example, the flapping of the letters T and D that occurs with many Americans in informal conversation is repeated with many Canadians. These letters, when they occur between vowels often have a sound like the R in arara. Another aspect of informal language is suppression of T after N and before a vowel, for example in international /innernational/, Toronto /toronno/ or /toronna/, Atlanta /atlanna/. Not all American and Canadian suppress T in these cases, but surely you will find many who do. And, as in the United States, the need to conquer huge territories and build a country forced the English to assimilate Canadian accents from different parts of the world and acquire characteristics.

Right and wrong in English: the politically correct words sexist attacks
In discussions about what is or is not politically correct sparks can fly in many directions at once. Usually the term is pejorative when applied by academics and journalists conservatives, especially in the United States, the views considered more liberal on issues of race, gender, sexual affinity, ecology and other topics. In turn, liberals attack the use of words or terms that they consider sexist (especialmente usados por homens contra mulheres), racist (usados por brancos contra negros), ableist (usados contra os deficientes físicos ou mentais), ageist (usados contra idosos), etc.
The politically correct words sexist attacks
Then another problem arises: is that there are many words in English that contain the word man can be sexist or not. For example, the word mankind (humanidade, mas que, literalmente, é a espécie do homem) can easily be replaced by people, humanity, and others, without discriminating between men and women. But words manufacture, manicure, manipulate, and others based on the Latin word for hand, contain man, without being sexist. Indeed, the very word humanity is in danger because the middle man. Incredibly, some supporters of the English politically correct want to change that.
Sexism is not allowed – Proibido o Sexismo
All this controversy has resulted in a number of euphemisms, words and terms artificially created that can take a long time to be adopted or simply ignored. The term Ms. (invented in 1949), for example, was created as an alternative to the words Miss (unmarried) and Mrs. (married woman or widow). Flight attendant (comissário/a de bordo) is a neutral term coined in 1947 to replace flight steward and stewardess flight, which distinguish between the sexes. However, only the new terms have come to be generally accepted in the 1970s.
The politically correct broadens his attack
But this is only one among other areas of English who also arouse the fiercest debates, such as the use of slang, jargon, profanity, gobbledygook and other specific types of language. These will be addressed in future articles about the many faces of English.
The exaggerations, presumption and arrogance of "keepers" are a little evil that has been and will continue to be attacked. But the very "permissive" admit some resistance against changes suggested on a whim, based on fads and crazes. Even the most liberal linguists agree with the need for some conventions, for example the fact that writing dog and dog no foot.
Disagreements about right and wrong will always exist in any language. In Portuguese it is no different, as seen in the opinion of Cunha and Cintra in New grammar of Portuguese contemporary, p. 6: "Among the extreme attitudes - those who advocate radical break with the classical traditions of language and those who aspire to be bound by old grammar rules - there's always room for a moderate position ..." And as I said John Ciardi, poet , American professor and critic: "In the end, the resistance of conservatives can not give up on anything, but at least obliges the proposed changes to prove their worth."
