Paper “Introduction : la dimension argumentative du discours – enjeux théoriques et pratiques” (Ruth Amossy) #discourse #argumentation via @OpenEditionActu


Le présent dossier se propose de revenir sur la notion aussi influente que discutée de « dimension argumentative » mise en place dans la théorie de l’argumentation dans le discours (Amossy 2012 [2000], 2005), mais aussi développée dans d’autres travaux, en particulier par Rabatel (2004, 2014, 20161) sous le nom d’« argumentation indirecte ». Il s’agit à la fois d’en tester la rentabilité, et de revenir sur les problèmes théoriques qu’elle a soulevés. Si elle s’est retrouvée au centre d’un débat, c’est en effet parce qu’elle met en jeu des questions fondamentales concernant d’une part la définition (et les frontières) de l’argumentation, et d’autre part les outils nécessaires à son analyse.

“Palabras clave” de dos discursos del rey Felipe de 2017 #CorpusLinguistics #Oratoria #Corpus

Gracias a las herramientas del programa Sketch Engine, he obtenido las palabras clave de dos discursos de Felipe VI. En la Lingüística de Corpus, una palabra clave es un término estadísticamente relevante: “keywords are those whose frequency is unusually high in comparison with some norm” (source)

Las palabras clave del discurso del 3 de octubre de 2017 son las siguientes:

New publication about Evaluation!

Evaluation in context

It is now an acknowledged fact in the world of linguistics that the concept of evaluation is crucial, and that there is very little – if any – discourse that cannot be analyzed through the prism of its evaluative content. This book presents some of the latest developments in the study of this phenomenon. Released more than a decade later than Hunston and Thompson’s (2000) Evaluation in Text, Evaluation in Context is designed as its sequel, in an attempt to continue, update and extend the different avenues of research opened by the earlier work. Both theoretical and empirical studies on the topic are presented, with the intention of scrutinizing as many of its dimensions as possible, by not only looking at evaluative texts, but also considering the aspects of the discursive context that affect the final evaluative meaning at both the production and reception stages of the evaluative act. The editors’ main objective has been to gather contributions which investigate the manifold faces and phases of evaluation by presenting a wide variety of perspectives that include different linguistic theories (e.g. Axiological Semantics, Functionalism or Politeness Theory), different levels of linguistic description (e.g. phonological, lexical or semantic), and different text types and contexts (e.g. the evaluation found in ironic discourse, the multimodality of media discourse or the world of politics, just to name a few). The volume can be of use not only for scholars who study the evaluative function of language, but also for students who wish to pursue research in the area.

Islam in the British press…

It’s worthy to read a briefing about

“Representations of
Islam in the British
1998 – 2009″ (CASS, Lancaster University).

They make the following “good practice recommendations” (Very valid for Spain…):

•Allow more space to quote and reflect the views of  “ordinary” Muslims

•Acknowledge different branches of Islam rather than  constructing Islam as a single religion, particularly as  different from and in conflict with ‘The West’

•Consider the cumulative impact of associating Islam with  terror, extremism and conflict and attempt more balanced reporting with coverage of a wider range of  contexts (culture, education, business, leisure, human interest stories, travel)

•Consider more carefully whether the religious orientation of people in stories is actually relevant to the reporting

•Avoid publishing letters or opinion pieces which are  deliberately aimed to be offensive or misleading
