Associated scholarship(s):12/20947-0 - The status of prosodic word in external vocalic sandhi, BE.EP.DD


This study has as main aims to analyze the process of external vocalic sandhi (the beginning of the word in the context of word junction) for Archaic Portuguese. The sandhi processes which happen through word junction constitute elision, diphthongization, crasis (MASSINI-CAGLIARI, 2005, for Archaic Portuguese) and hiatus. Through this work and from a non-explored corpus (especially as for linguistic themes - SNOW, 1987, p. 478-480; MASSINI-CAGLIARI, 2005, p.24-26), it is intended to contribute to reaching a deeper knowledge of Portuguese prosody history in the period of its recognition as an "independent" language in relation to Latin. Thus, the elucidation of some characteristics of the past linguistic Portuguese may help to clarify the facts of current structure. (AU)
