A study of the observation to "custom and use" in Fernão de Oliveira's grammatica da lingoagem portuguesa

Abstract : In this paper we present evidence that Fernão de Oliveira’s Grammatica da Lingoagem Portuguesa is a descriptive grammar of the Portuguese language whose basis are usage facts. We defend that Oliveira’s reflections and conclusions about the Portuguese language are guided by “costume and use”. In order to do so, we discuss oppositions and tensions (historical, but also current) regarding his examination of language, like those established between facts and description of facts, description and prescription, variation and change, language and society, grammatical authorship and authorship affiliation. We conclude that these matters reveal Oliveira’s notable position as a keen observer of “costume and use”.
