Download Como escrever na internet (Portuguese Edition) by Dad Squarisi PDF

By Dad Squarisi

Escrever é verbo transitivo. Escreve-se para o leitor. Contemporâneo, ele vive no século XXI. Tem à mão livros, jornais, revistas, rádio, television e o universo sem fim da net. As 24 horas do dia são insuficientes pra abarcar tanta informação. Resultado: os textos longos, exibidos, cheios de erudição caíram de moda. As novas tecnologias revolucionaram a escrita e a leitura. Econômicas mensagens eletrônicas ganharam espaço e prestígio. Os esbanjadores verbais têm de se conter e se curvar ao estilo moderno. Nele imperam duas regras de ouro. Uma: menor é melhor. A outra: menos é mais. Como chegar lá? Ninguém precisa inventar nada. Nem abdicar da norma culta. A língua oferece os recursos para quem quer algo mais do que escrever. Quer escrever melhor – dar recados claros, concisos e prazerosos. Com humor, este livro apresenta o passo a passo do dizer muito com pouco.Na primeira parte, comentamos as várias línguas que falamos e escrevemos. Entre elas, a culta, ensinada nas escolas e exigida em provas, concursos e na vida profissional. Também a das salas de bate-papo, em que imperam as abreviaturas, as trocas de letras, a invenção de códigos. Nas duas partes seguintes, convocamos o metro e a tesoura. Um fica de olho na extensão de palavras e frases. A outra toma providências cirúrgicas – corta. Na última, three hundred diquinhas de português em até a hundred and forty caracteres jogam luz sobre velhos calos da língua – crase, concordâncias, regências, etimologias, grafias espinhosas. Livrar-se deles abre portas. A língua culta funciona como passaporte para a liberdade. Conhecendo-lhe as manhas, podemos escolher, brincar e entrar na onda das novas mídias. Dad Squarisi.
