Asterix e os pronomes sujeitos : uma análise contrastiva do emprego dos pronomens sujeitos no português europeu e brasileiro
2019, Widera, Carmen, Kaiser, Georg A.
The paper discusses the use of subject pronouns in European and Brazilian Portuguese. More precisely, the analysis presented here focuses on the hypothesis of PB being a partial null subject language. The methodology used consists in the investigation of a parallel text, concretely two translations of the Asterix comic into EP and BP, and in the comparison of the subject occurrences in the two varieties. The analysis reveals, generally speaking, a more frequent and less restricted use of subject pronouns in BP compared to EP, showing altogether that BP does not fulfil all the characteristics of a partial null subject language.
