Mensagem:  Hello Gilberto For what you've written, are you a teacher? Well, I don't have all the theoretical knowledge to discuss such issue but I believe that these exchanges of information help us a lot in teaching and learning a foreign language (It would be better if we could learn in a second language environment but not everyone has this possibility). Marcos Bagno in his book "A língua de Eulália" says that the native speakers of a language in first instance do not commit mistakes, they start using or writing some aspects that naturally have been created in a given community, but a foreign speaker runs more risks to commit a mistake than a native speaker. For what I understand what Ricardo says, we have to check if the sentence "sounds good" or at least if it has already been used by a native (or even someone or a community who have been in the second language environment for a long time) and to tell you the truth Gilberto I've never seen this structure so far, and even if a well-known English writer has used such structure, it would be rare or strange in the language. What you proposed to analyse makes sense but I think that it's better use the classical "Blue car". Good luck José Roberto
