CALLOU, Dinah; MORAES, João  and  LEITE, Yonne. Apagamento do R Final no Dialeto Carioca: um Estudo em Tempo Aparente e em Tempo Real. DELTA [online]. 1998, vol.14, n.spe, pp.00-00. ISSN 1678-460X.

This paper deals with the weakening process of the phoneme R in final coda position, in Rio de Janeiro dialect. Following labovian quantitative approach, three sets of data are compared, in order to present a case-study in apparent time and real time, through a panel and a trend study. It is shown that final R deletion follows age grading pattern and cannot be considered a change in progress.
