Recently, there are many studies that deal with a linguistic phenomenon related to the non- prototypical use and not considered by normative grammars about the complex sentences construction. It is the case of constructions that although presenting some subordination mark, are useindependently without being related to a matrix clause, a phenomenon characterized as "insubordination" (EVANS, 2007 2009). Considering this tendency, this project aims to describe the uses of conditional insubordinate adversative constructions in Brazilian Portuguese that have not been amply described in this language. For this purpose, it will be used the linguistic functionalist perspective which analyses real linguistics situations, social interactions as according to Evans (2007), Schwenter (2013, 2016), Sansiñema (2015), D' Hertefelt (2015), Gras (2011), theoretical assumptions refering to the insubordination process, and conditional clauses. Through this project results, which proposes the analyses and description of a phenomenon still not amply described, it is intended to contribute with the fulfilment of a lacuna on the conditional constructions studies in Brazilian Portuguese.
