FREITAG, Raquel Meister Ko.. Usage, belief and attitudes in variation of first person plural in Brazilian Portuguese. DELTA [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.4, pp.889-917. ISSN 1678-460X.

Several sociolinguistic studies have shown the non-relevance of schooling effect on the variation between "nós" and "a gente" in the expression of 1st person plural in Brazilian Portuguese, and this fact suggests that there are not stigma towards the usage of both forms. However, not always does the linguistic behavior correspond to the beliefs and language attitudes; and, from the viewpoint of social evaluation, which shows both social and stylistic stratification degrees. In order to investigate these degrees, only results of sociodemographic distribution of the variables are not enough; the triangulation of the maximum of evidences, from different perceptual sources, can help to understand the phenomenon. Strategies to measure this correlation are presented and discussed, in order to contribute to the disclosure of the sociolinguistics of perception about the phenomenon, as the embedding in the linguistic structure and the effect of institutional sources in constraining the change.
