Resumo

In European Portuguese, the domain for sandhi phenomena is the intonational phrase. Unlike the intonational
phrase, the phonological phrase has been shown to be only relevant for rhythm and prominence-related phenomena
(Frota, 2000, 2014). Fricative voicing between words (casa[b]rancas, casa[p]retas) and ressylabification before
vowel-initial words (casa[z]marelas) occur within the intonational phrase. In this study, we considered
spontaneous productions of a Portuguese child (Luma), aged 2;04-4;00, to examine the acquisition of external
consonantal sandhi. The data show that sandhi production varies according to the segmental (C#C, C#V, CFric,
CVib, CLat) and prosodic context (clitic, prosodic word, position in prosodic structure). The data further confirm
that sandhi occurs within the intonational phrase, supporting the analysis proposed for the adult grammar. This
study contributes to the understanding of the relationship between the acquisition of the prosodic structure and the
acquisition of sandhi phenomena.
