Abstract [en]

Within the research on the participation of Africans and their descendants in the formation of Brazilian Portuguese, the aim of this paper is to analyze occurrences of the prefix z/zi , as well as its variant ji , in oral and written representations of speech of Africans and their descendants in Brazil as well as in Africa. The main issues are: a) what is the origin of this particle and how was it integrated into varieties of Brazilian and African Portuguese? It is argued that the particle zi  is a remnant of a Bantu noun class prefix which has lost its grammatical function

Abstract [pt]

Tendo como pano de fundo a pesquisa sobre a participação de africanos e afrodescendentes na constituição do português brasileiro, o objetivo deste trabalho é analisar ocorrências do prefixo z’/zi , assim como sua variante ji , em representações orais e escritas da fala de africanos e seus descendentes no Brasil, e compará-las com ocorrências da mesma partícula em variedades do português africano. Ás questões de pesquisa são: qual é a origem desta partícula e como se deu sua integração no português brasileiro e nas variedades do português africano? Argumenta-se que a partícula em questão é um vestígio de prefixo de classe nominal de origem bantu que perdeu a sua função gramatical.
