Title: Ordem de palavras em exclamativas com demonstrativos em Português Europeu
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: This paper focuses on the study of the syntactic position filled by the demonstrative determiner (este, esse, aquele) innominal wh- exclamative sentences in European Portuguese (EP) like Que menina esta!. We draw on works onSpanish and Catalan (Castroviejo Miró 2006 a,b; Alonso Cortés 1999) and develop a hypothesis capable ofexplaining why the demonstrative in EP can occupy such a position, which apparently is a post-nominal one. Wedefend the hypothesis that in this type of exclamative the post-nominal position of the demonstrative is the result ofan elliptical predicative clause. In order to understand the position of the demonstrative, we also analyse thestructures of wh-exclamatives, of predicative clauses and of degree phrases.
