O Rei D. Sebastião -1571, óleo sobre tela 99 x 85cm Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga Lisboa, Portugal da autoria de Cristovão de Morais.

D. Sebastião, décimo-sexto Rei de Portugal, e sétimo da Dinastia de Avis desapareceu no decurso da Batalha de Alcácer-Quibir em 4 de Agosto de 1578, ou seja faz hoje 427 anos. Em virtude de ser um herdeiro tão esperado para dar continuidade à Dinastia de Avis, ficou conhecido pelo cognome de O Desejado; alternativamente, é também memorado como O Encoberto ou O Adormecido, devido à lenda que se refere ao seu regresso numa manhã de nevoeiro, para salvar a Nação.
Em tempos de crise vem sempre à memória esta lenda. Já não estamos em tempos de monarquia mas que muita gente continua à espera de um (senão este) D. Sebastião para traçar os rumos do país … lá isso é verdade.

O "lisboetês" que se foda. Viva o português

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 11:17 am
Já estou preocupado com tantos artigos (sim recuso-me a escrever “posts”) sobre um neologismo que agora vejo com frequência inusitada na internet – o chamado “lisboetês” -. Não que não partilhe das preocupações de Vital Moreira em Crónica de falar lisboetês (ao que sei, artigo que despoletou este tema).
Não tenho a coragem de “besugo” em “Dialectos Lxbôa” (” Olhai: explicai-me lá, então, porque dizeis Paris. Não deveríeis vós dizer “Pàrri”, ó inenarráveis putas ?), mas falem em português, caralho! E ponham mas é esses meninos ( meninas) da élite burguesa (que andam em colégios internacionais a aprender a deturpar a pronúncia) na escola primária do bairro, a falar em condições com todos os erres e esses.
Tal como o autor “confesso que não me agrada nada a ideia de que, por força da força homogeneizadora da televisão, cada vez mais portugueses sejam “colonizados” pela maneira de falar lisboeta” (sic mas o destaque é nosso) . É assunto que me preocupa só que acho que o lisboetês não tem ainda assim tanta força para se impôr ao país. Mesmo com a força homogeneizadora da televisão.

A culpa da “lisboetização” é da cambada de políticos que só se preocupam em mudar as administrações das empresas públicas sempre que muda o ministro, em vez de fazer alguma coisa pela língua portuguesa e pela educação. E esse fazer alguma coisa passa sem dúvida por haver preocupações de qualidade nos serviços de televisão. Se a generalidade dos produtos é importada, pelo menos nos telejornais e nos comentadores que contrata o serviço público de televisão deveria ter cuidado com a língua. Ponha-se-lhes pimenta sempre que digam asneiras! Ou será isso censura?

No entanto, como temos uma “democracia” e o Governo é do povo, no fundo o mal parece que é deste que não (se) sabe … pronunciar.

PS: Sr. Baptista Bastos: Bolhão é Bolhão e não Bulhão! ( de Bulhões era o Fernando) , ou seja por se pronunciar “bulhão” (ou “bulhom”) não quer dizer que se escreva com “u”.

Crónica de falar lisboetês
Baptista Bastos responde em “Contra o sotaque único”
Crónica do falar lisboetês – bis
Eduardo Cintra Torres – “Lisboetês, o coimbrês e outros sotaques”
Lisboetês (2) em “Causa-nossa”
Lisboetês (3) em “Causa-nossa”
“Dialectos Lxbôa” in “Blogamemucho”
