The project aims to investigate issues related to subjectivity in Alzheimer's disease (AD) in institutional interaction, in view of the linguistic resource narrative and multimodal aspects, such as body and materials resources. Therefore, we will start from videoanalysis doing an etnographic work registering videos in clinical consultation environment with AD patients to compose a corpus of analysis which we will transcribe based on Mondada (2016) including, therefore, the multimodal aspects of the interaction. From the analysis of the corpus will be made a study taking into account the multimodal aspects that will appear in the interactions as one of the ways to investigate the subjectivity, besides the role of the narrative in this investigation and as a result of the patient's search for the expression of the language and by the search for a self that still resides in the subject with the linguistic deficit.
