Ter/Haver-Existential Clauses in Brazilian Portuguese: Variation and Change.
Callou, Dinah
This paper discusses the details of existential sentences constructed with the Portuguese verbs "ter" and "haver" in the interpersonal form. The uses of these verbs are discussed and analyzed in detail. The history and evolution of linguistic changes in Brazilian Portuguese are discussed in an attempt to detect historical social and cultural factors responsible for the variation in existential sentences. (Contains 15 references.) (KFT)
