Resumo

This paper investigates the interpretation preferences for null and overt subject pronouns in anaphoric and
cataphoric contexts in L2 Portuguese and, specifically, whether: i) the L1 of the participants (Italian and German)
influences their interpretation; ii) there is evidence of development; iii) there are differences determined by
pronoun type and context. The results of a picture selection task administered to the L2 groups and a group of L1
adults show that the distinction between null and overt subjects is established early; learners distinguish anaphoric
and cataphoric contexts and their performance may be influenced by processing constraints; there is some
development from beginner to advanced level, visible in the Italian group mainly for overt pronouns; and the
proximity of the L1 appears to facilitate L2 acquisition.
