Resumo

In this paper we propose a synchronic, corpus-based account of insubordination, through the analysis of adverbial clauses in Brazilian Portuguese spontaneous speech at the syntax/prosody interface. The segmentation of the speech flow through prosodic cues is crucial to analyse linguistic and, specifically, syntactic relations in spoken language. Besides, it is through prosody that illocutionary and informational values are conveyed in speech. Our claim is that insubordination can be studied without assuming the existence of a grammaticalization path or main clause ellipsis processes, given that through specific illocutionary prosodic profiles, syntactically dependent clauses are assigned pragmatic autonomy.
