FLORES, Valdir do Nascimento. World view and enunciation: On the passage from infans to speaker. Lingüística [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.2, pp.13-25.  Epub 01-Dic-2019. ISSN 2079-312X.

This article seeks to present the bases of an anthropological-enunciative perspective of the study of the child’s passage from the condition ofinfansto speaker. To this end, the following course is pursued: a shift from the idea oflanguage acquisitionto that of acquisition of a particular languageis proposed, so that the analysis of data is not to meant to be directed to explain the language capacity, but for showing the restrictions proper of acquiring a given language (Jakobson 1969). Subsequently, based on Humboldt (1820(2000)) and Benveniste (1988 e 1989), the idea is developed that speaking a language requires the child to speak-and-adopt a certainworld view.

Finally, on the basis of ethnographic studies (Cohn 2000a e 2000b) of childhood among the Kayapó -subgroup of the Xikrin people, whose language is Jê-, inhabitants of the southwestern area of the state of Pará (Brazil), the general outline is presented of a research that understands the process of acquiring a given language as the acquisition of the world view of this language.

Palabras clave : of enunciation; enunciation; interaction; language acquisition; Xikrin (Kayapó); world view.
