Is the cê just short for você?
Indeed, cê is short for você. However, it is a little tricky. Notice that it can happen at the beginning of a sentence, “cê quer falar comigo?” (do you want to talk to me). But você doesn’t get reduced at the end of the sentence. That is, you cannot say, *”eu quero falar com cê.” (I want to talk to you.) Weird, but that’s the way it is.
