errarHoje na aula apresentamos a parte de Língua de LESCANT.

Se você tiver uma foto ou vídeo, favor de incluir no Grupo de Facebook: LESCANT Orlando

Bom, nesse post eu gostaria que vocês escrevessem seus comentários das diferenças culturais que já observaram aqui em Salvador sobre Língua.  Esses comentário poderiam incluir:  etnocentrismo lingüístico, relacionamento com o grupo, aliança lingüística com um grupo, etc.

Nessa foto, eu gostei a brincadeira com “h” na palavra “errar” e sem o “h” na palavra “humano.”

Lembram-se que as fotos do Orlando estão nos seguintes sites:
