For this, I am going to review the production of research in this theme and to review the results about the movement of the cognitives categories. This work is oriented by multisistemic model of linguistic change (Castilho 2004), because it check the atuation of activation, reactivation, desactivation principles. In second moment, I am going to verifie these same principles in X-que structures of standard Portuguese. These steps carry on the possibility to drawn some grammaticalization routes of Portuguese language. (AU)
