Abstract

This article analyses the representation of arbitrary subjects of infinitival clauses in spoken and written European and Brazilian Portuguese. The results suggest that the increasing use of nominative arbitrary pronouns in variation with a null subject in spoken Brazilian Portuguese can be related to its partial pro-drop nature and the availability of the inflected infinitive.
