O Acordo Ortográfica

I’ve been meaning to write an article about the 1990 Acordo Ortográfica da Língua Portuguesafor a while now but never really felt up to it. There’s a really good video on YouTube though, of Portuguese humorist Ricardo Araújo Pereira, author of Reaccionário Com Dois Cês in conversation with Brazilian Renaissance man Gregório Duvivier, that makes a pretty good introduction to what it is, why it’s needed and why it falls miserably short. It’s a little hard to follow in places but not as bad as I expected. Both speak pretty clearly and I found I could laugh at the jokes as well as simply learning, which was a nice bonus.
