Anaphoric temporal locators in European and Brazilian Portuguese

Abstract

This paper is an attempt to describe the main differences between European Portuguese (EP) and Brazilian Portuguese (BP) concerning the form and the use of anaphoric temporal locators. I concentrate on two types of locators: locators with demonstratives (Section 3) and locators with vague time expressions (Section 4). With respect to the former type, I propose that the opposition between locators headed by an explicit operator and locators headed by an implicit operation interacts with deixis and anaphora dependencies. As for the latter type, I restrict myself to the presentation of lexical and semantic differences between the two varieties.
