          Abstract

          RESUMO Neste trabalho, apresentamos um estudo comparado de demonstrativos na tradução medieval em diferentes línguas (latim, italiano, francês, catalão, espanhol e português) de uma mesma obra (tratado ascético de Isaac de Nínive) em uma perspectiva funcional. Confirmou-se a hipótese de que os sistemas de demonstrativos se reestruturaram, no processo de mudanças linguísticas do latim às línguas românicas, não apenas em termos de formas, mas, sobretudo, em termos de funções: os demonstrativos passaram a exercer funções que, no latim, eram expressas por conjunção, locução explicativa, particípio presente, pronome relativo, pronome anafórico e de identidade, pronome intensivo e mesmo por ausência de recurso formal. Por fim, verificou-se que o contexto em que houve maior retenção do uso de demonstrativos foi o de expressão de contraste imediato.

          ABSTRACT This paper presents a comparative study of demonstratives in the medieval translation in different languages (Latin, Italian, French, Catalan, Spanish and Portuguese) of the same work (an ascetic treatise of Isaac of Nineveh) in a functional perspective. It was confirmed the hypothesis that the demonstrative systems were restructured in the language change process from Latin to Romance languages, not only in terms of forms but especially in terms of functions: the demonstratives began to perform functions which, in the Latin, were expressed by conjunction, explanatory phrase, present participle, relative pronoun, anaphoric and identity pronoun, intensive pronoun and even by the lack of formal resource. Finally, it was found that the context in which there was a major retention of the use of demonstratives is in the expression of immediate contrast.
