Abstract/Description:
The Portuguese Future Subjunctive (FS) is frequently studied since out of all modern romance languages, this verbal tense and mood is regularly maintained only in Portuguese. Moreover, variation and alternation occur in the use of the FS by the speakers of the language through a substitution of the irregular inflections of the FS by the regular inflections of the Personal Infinitive (IP). The only difference between the FS and the IP is found in the irregular verbs of the FS, and these are usually (")regularized(") by Portuguese speakers. Since the regular verbs of the FS are identical to the IP, through a false analogy there is a tendency to use the IP for the irregular verbs as well. This thesis studies the role that immersion plays in the production of the FS and the regularization of irregular verbs by immersed speakers. The results of this study show that although there is a difference in the use of the FS between the immersed and non-immersed speakers, there is no difference as far as the regularization that occurs between both groups. The results also indicate that the regularization phenomenon is minimal, and the only difference between the native speakers of Portuguese in Brazil and the immersed group in the United States is found in the production and election of the verbal tense that is used. Although immersion seems to be affecting the immersed group at a morphological level, there seems to be no difference as far as the regularization of the FS between the immersed and non immersed groups.
