Abstract: The main goal of this paper is to propose a structure for Free Small Clauses of Brazilian Portuguese, through the analysis of an exclamative structure consisting in a juxtaposition of a Predicate and its Subject in that order with no verb or tense morphology in its surface. In order to do so, I show some syntactic-semantic restrictions that govern these structures followed by some syntactic diagnostics. I conclude that Free Small Clauses are root-TPs.
