This work belongs to Linguistics Change and Acquisition area and it has as object of study the variable use of the verbs "ter" (to have) and "haver" (there to be) in the existential sense. Our goal is analyze the frequency of use oh those verbs in the speech of children between 7 and 12 years old, in this way, we used the data of the LUAL Project - Used Language at Alagoas. We use the Quantitative Sociolinguistics methodology and the theoretical assumptions of the Gerative Theory. According the results, we have checked that the use of the verb "ter" is really greater than the use of the verb "haver" - 96% versus 4%, which indicates that the existential "ter" is the verb selected along the natural process of language acquisition.

    I argue that parenthetical verb clauses (PVCs) (Urmson in Mind ) such as John reckons, I confess, and she hopes always modify (that is, 'have an interpretative effect upon') propositions that may express illocutionary force. I illustrate that the apparent ability of PVCs to modify subclausal...

In both experiments, a speech error induction task...

    The organizational as well as the processing differences between grammatical classes of words (e.g., verbs & nouns) have recently become a topic of interest among psycholinguists, researchers into language acquisition, and aphasiologists. Previous studies have shown that verbs, as a class, are...

    Children must possess some ability to process input in a meaningful manner to acquire language. The present study reports on data from an experiment investigating 3- to 5-year-old English-speaking children's understanding of restrictive relative clauses manipulated for embeddedness and focus....
