This research internship aims at studying the paraphrase as a mechanism of interlanguage reformulation (translation), in an attempt to better complement our postdoctoral studies in Brazil, regarding the paraphrastic relations. Seeking for ways to operationalize a project that deals with lexicon in language teaching and learning, our postdoctoral research focalizes on the paraphrase, which is considered to be as a process of reformulation both intralanguage and interlanguage. However, at the moment, we have only worked into the intralanguage perspective. We do intend going to France in order to develop the interlanguage perspective through a work that will fulfill our research, allowing the research groups, entitled "Articulation between language and natural languages concerning the teaching-learning process" and "LEnTe - Laboratory of Enunciative Studies of the Text" both from Federal University of São Carlos, along with the French group "LIDIL 12 - Linguistique et Didactique des Langues" (UPEC, EA IMAGER), coordinated by Professor Lucie Gournay to be in contact. From an enunciative viewpoint, based on the "Theory of Predicative and Enunciative Operations", proposed by the French linguist Antoine Culioli, we plan to constitute a translation corpus, which will be organized from lexicon occurrences that are found in students' essays. These writing productions were analyzed in our research in Brazil. At present, our goal is to have the Portuguese-French format, leading us to a contrastive observation. (AU)
