ABSTRACT
Based on contribution of discourse analysis, we verified relationship between prosodic variation and changes in the discursive process of a nine year old child diagnosed with language disorder by a speech pathologist. Utterances containing changes in discursive plans were extracted from five speech-language therapy sessions, which had been videotaped. Three judges, speech-language pathologists specialized in voice, received transcriptions and audio versions of the selected utterances, and referred whether they noticed a relationship between prosodic variations and changes in discursive plans. In the case of affirmative answers, they were oriented to clarify which were the prosodic aspects that varied in the distinctions. The judges observed these relationships in 96.90% of the utterances. Intensity and speed variations marked the vocal adjustments of different discourse protagonists; fundamental frequency variations characterized the voices of different characters played by the child during therapy situations. The child's vocal adjustments in different enunciation-discursive situations were not marked by prosodic change. Children with language disorders who do not dominate the syntactic complexity of organization of the different plans of discourse may, therefore, mark them through prosodic resources.
