TAVARES, Maria Alice. A COMPARATIVE SOCIOLINGUISTIC ANALYSIS OF SEQUENCE CONNECTORS: FOCUS ON EDUCATION. Lingüística [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.2, pp.113-128. ISSN 2079-312X.

Under the light of comparative variationist sociolinguistics, I take the connectors e, aí and então as variants of the discursive variable named “retroactive-propeller sequenciation of information”, which is responsible for establishing a continuity and consonance cohesive link between utterances. I have as main objective to compare influences of education level on this variable phenomenon in Natal (RN), in Northeastern Brazil, and in Florianópolis (SC), in Southern Brazil. The data, obtained from sociolinguistic interviews, were submitted to multivariate statistical analysis. The results show that in both speech communities connectors e and então are favored by more educated individuals, while connector aí, which is considered typical of informal interactions, is favored by less educated individuals. These results conform to the sociolinguistic generalization that predicts correlation between higher levels of education and positively evaluated forms, and lower levels of education and negatively evaluated forms, bringing evidence that this generalization applies to discursive variables
