PROJECTS:

1) SCENES OF GENRE ACQUISITION: A LOOK AT THE INSERTION OF A CHILD IN ORAL AND WRITTEN GENRE

Some research in applied linguistics point to an oral and written concept as two social practices of language use. Thus, the connection between them are given within a typological continuum of social practices of textual production (Marcuschi, 2009).The two modes are characterized as multisystemics, using multiple languages, for example, orality uses gestures, mimicry, prosody, etc. and writing uses color, size, shape of letters and symbols, as well as logographic, pictographic and iconic elements, among others, for expressive purposes. The project, which is based on interactional assumptions, plans to observe the course of the acquisition of oral genres in their multi-system, that is, describe how the acquisition happens by observing orality in its extra linguistic, paralinguistic and linguistic natures. Studies, such as the one from McNeill (1985), advocate that gesture and speech are integrated in the same matrix of production and meaning, i.e. they constitute a single language system. We want to observe that array from the acquisition of genres perspective.

2) WRITTEN ACQUISITION IN HEARING IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS: SINGULARITIES IN THE LITERACY PATH

This project aims to involve the future professional of Letras in studies intended to acquire a new perspective of the language education, approaching hearing impaired individuals, trying to understand the linguistic structure of LIBRAS (Brazilian Hand Sign Language) and how the language implementation works. Given these purposes, it focuses on the following issues: 1) recognition of

Libras as language; 2) comprehension of hearing impaired people’s writing, that is, the comprehension to acquire a new language, one does not need the impaired individual’s phonological skills as listeners; 3) perception of singularities and regularities in the writing of hearing impaired individuals; 4) understanding of speech and its variations in LIBRAS 5) understanding of the hearing impaired individual literay; 6) linguistic contribution to the inclusion of hearing impaired individuals; 7) understanding of hearing impaired people culture.
