A influência da referencialidade no processamento de orações relativas em português brasileiro

Gitanna Brito Bezerra, Márcio Martins Leitão, Lorrane da Silva Neves Medeiros

Abstract


Neste artigo apresentamos dois experimentos que foram conduzidos para investigar, no português brasileiro, o papel da referencialidade no processamento de orações relativas associadas a Sintagmas Nominais complexos (SNs complexos) do tipo substância (como “a bolsa de (do) couro”). O experimento de leitura automonitorada revelou uma preferência imediata pela aposição não local, evidenciando uma forte influência da referencialidade do N1 no processamento da oração relativa. O experimento de rastreamento ocular, por sua vez, revelou um efeito imediato da referencialidade do N2: uma aposição local é favorecida quando o N2 é referencial e uma aposição não local é preferida quando o N2 não é referencial. Nossos dados vão na direção do que é proposto pela Hipótese de Construal (FRAZIER; CLIFTON, 1996).


Keywords
