The purpose of this research project is to describe and interpret occurrences of hypersegmentation of written words - as "na quela" (that) - from a longitudinal study of texts written by twelve students over the final four years (sixth to ninth year) of Elementary School in a public school in Sao José do Rio Preto city. Assuming that the type of graphic mark found in the data of hypersegmentation is constitutive heterogeneity of writing (Corrêa, 2004), we aim to investigate the relationship between prosodic aspects linked to the pace and characteristics related to written spelling conventions. We may interpret these clues as attempts to graphical representation of words that signal how the relationship between spoken and written statements of the clerk and the trajectory toward the convention of the written word is. The texts from which we hold the hypersegmentations belong to the Database Writing Elementary School II, due to the University Extension Project "Development Workshops Reading, Interpretation and Textual Production," funded by the Dean of Extension (Proex), UNESP.
