British researchers have discovered an Amazonian tribe that understands the concepts of time and date in a rather unusual way. The Amowanda people of Brazil do not even have words for ’time’, ’week’, ’month’ or ’year’, said Chris Sinha of the University of Portsmouth. He argues that it is the first time scientists have been able to prove that time is not a deeply entrenched universal human concept. The professor reported his findings in the Journal of Language and Cognition, writing: ‘For the Amondawa, time does not exist in the same way as it does for us. ‘We can now say without doubt that there is at least one language and culture which does not have a concept of time as something that can be measured, counted or talked about in the abstract’. ‘This doesn’t mean that the Amondawa are “people outside time”, but they live in a world of events, rather than seeing events as being embedded in time.’ Team members, including linguist Wany Sampaio and anthropologist Vera da Silva Sinha, spent eight weeks with the Amondawa researching how their language conveys concepts like ‘next week’ or ‘last year’. There were no words for such concepts, only divisions of day and night and rainy and dry seasons. They also found nobody in the community had an age. Instead, they change their names to reflect their life stage and position within their society. For example, a little child will give up their name to a newborn sibling and take on a new one. A)Descreva a descoberta feita por pesquisadores britânicos e cite exemplos que a ilustrem? B) Compare a noção de tempo ilustrada na charge com a da tribo Amondawa?
