  • Linguistic ideologies of students entering an Argentine university

    • Authors: Ivana Casas, Julieta Gurvit, Paola Viviana Pereira
      Pages: 1 - 15
      Abstract: This work is part of the PROAPI Research Project “Reading and writing in the initial cycle of the Universidad Nacional de Avellaneda”. One of the axes developed in it is linguistic diversity in relation to academic writing processes. A significant percentage of our students are in a situation of languages ​​in contact, they can even be considered bilingual in a broad sense (Speranza, 2012). Considering these specificities in the academic field helps prevent linguistic differences from becoming linguistic inequality with the consequence of abandonment of university studies. Therefore, in the first stage of the investigation, we conducted a survey of incoming students, whose partial result we are interested in exhibiting in this work. One of the questions was to describe with a word or phrase a list of languages ​​that were offered in order to identify linguistic ideologies (del Valle, 2007). From the analysis carried out, it is observed that the predominant linguistic ideologies on the Quechua and Guaraní languages are built, on the one hand, in negative terms of emptiness and enigma, as an unknown terrain of which little and nothing can be said, and on the other, in terms affirmative based on the ideas of ethnicity and foreigners.

  • A study of (im)politeness on the Facebook pages of the main Spanish
           political parties: the sex variable and face acts

    • Authors: Isabel García Martínez
      Pages: 16 - 28
      Abstract: This study aims to find out which gender has the greatest participation in the Facebook pages of the 5 main Spanish political parties: Partido Socialista Obrero Español (PSOE), Partido Popular (PP), Ciudadanos, Unidos Podemos and Vox and whether gender-based behavior differs with regards to face flattering acts (FFA) and face threatening acts (FTA). For this reason, a metric analysis of the electoral campaign of the general elections of the year 2019 has been prepared and a corpus of 2500 comments has been collected during the last day, on 26th of April.

  • Approximators and mitigators in Chilean Spanish: the case of
           'como' and 'como que'

    • Authors: Lissette Andrea Mondaca Becerra
      Pages: 29 - 52
      Abstract: This article analyses the use of the approximators como and como que in Chilean Spanish, and the link between their approximative semantic value and pragmatic mitigation. Previous works have given the marker como an approximative value (Mihatsch, 2009, 2010; Jørgensen and Stenstrøm 2009; Jørgensen, 2011; Holmvik, 2011; Kornfeld, 2013; Kern, 2014; Jiménez and Flores-Ferrán, 2018), and also a mitigating one (Puga, 1997; Briz, 1998; Jørgensen, 2011; Holmvik, 2011; Kornfeld, 2013, Panussis, 2016; Mondaca, 2017; Panussis and San Martín, 2017). Thus, the objective here is to analyze the relationship between semantic approximation and pragmatic mitigation through these particles, in order to establish whether all those approximative uses of como and como que also perform a mitigating function. Likewise, this paper seeks to propose a general description of those contexts that motivate Chilean speakers to approximate and mitigate their discourse through como and como que. For this purposes, 24 sociolinguistic interviews extracted from the corpus compiled in the Fondecyt Project 11110211 have been used. The main results show that como is a semantic approximator that, in those contexts where the speaker seeks to safeguard his or her face, acquires a pragmatic mitigation function, while como que, on the other hand, is a particle which predominant function is to mitigate.

  • Politeness variation in the expression of requests in Castillian Spanish
           and European Portuguese

    • Authors: María C. Sampedro Mella
      Pages: 54 - 73
      Abstract: In this article we present the results of a contrastive analysis about the politeness strategies used in the expression of petitions in Castilian Spanish and European Portuguese. By using the DCT methodology, we have designed a questionnaire with petitions of different cost-benefit for the conversational partner and with variations relative to power and the social distance that exists between the participants. Once the data was gathered, we did a triple study about the differences in the expression of petitions: 1) between Spanish and Portuguese, 2) from the rank of imposition of the object and the petition, and 3) according to the social distance and the relative power of the participants. The results show that, although using different linguistic and politeness strategies, the expression of petitions is similar between Spanish and Portuguese speakers, although the latter take the social distance and the relative power of the hearer more into account than the Spanish speakers at the moment of choosing politeness forms.
