The existing research on impoliteness in the Spanish-speaking cultures does not deal specifically with theoretical discussions about impoliteness and conflict, possibly because impoliteness usually leads to conflict as an associated concept. This relationship between impoliteness and conflict is embedded in the realms of impolite disagreements, impolite clashes and similar negative occurrences of verbal aggression. Hence, the prevailing attitude among researchers of impoliteness both within and outside the cultural context of Spanish has been to perceive conflict as something intrinsic to impoliteness, and thus the concepts of impoliteness and conflict have been approached in the same way. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to analyse the common ground between both concepts as well as their main differences, illustrated with examples taken from social interactions of Spanish-speaking cultures. This question is worth looking into, for it has received little attention in the literature to date.&nbsp; Besides, it is also interesting to note that despite the characteristics that impoliteness and conflict have in common, they are not the same phenomenon in terms of the effects caused in interaction by each one of them.</p> 2020-05-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The construction of face in Argentine women through the analysis of impolite reactions in social network sites 2020-07-04T04:37:33+00:00 Elizabeth Andrea Di Nardo <p>This exploratory study aims to analyze the construction of face of the River Plate woman projected through impolite reactions to news triggered by online comments on Twitter and Facebook. To this end, from a corpus of 258 comments, 24 impolite instances to news that feature women in Argentina in the year 2019 were selected and analysed from the Sociocultural Pragmatics framework. In order to examine the corpus, we applied the components of the social image assigned to the woman in the Rioplatense sociocultural context (Di Nardo, in press) as well as the categories proposed by Kaul de Marlangeon (2008) for impoliteness complemented by strategies such as irony, sarcasm, mockery, face-threatening vocatives (Kaul de Marlangeon, 1995) and denigrative description (Kaul de Marlangeon, 2009). The results ratify an image of a woman consistent with socially and traditionally accepted stereotypes; therefore, the construction of a negative and devalued image of the <em>Rioplatense</em> woman is reinforced.</p> 2020-05-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sexism as an instrument for ideological division in a distribution list of an Argentine public university 2020-07-04T04:37:32+00:00 Cristina del Valle Núñez <p>The purpose of this paper is to expose, from a theoretical discursive and sociocultural approach (Bravo, 2010), how verbal impoliteness (Kaul de Marlangeon 2005, 2008, 2010) manifests itself in discussions, motivated by ideological differences, in a distribution list of an Argentine public university. We confirm the ideological disagreement in the impolite linguistic manifestations of the interlocutors during the communicative exchanges. We also observe how issues related to gender sexism support these arguments. From the total number of discussions, three in which the studied phenomenon is evidenced were chosen. Introspection (Bravo, 2009) and spontaneous consultation (Kaul de Marlangeon 2012)&nbsp; were used as methods for the methodology.&nbsp;The results show that, on the one hand, the interlocutors opt for fustigation impoliteness by exacerbated affiliation or refractoriness (Kaul de Marlangeon, 2005) when exposing their ideology and, on the other, that the distribution list alters their primary function and becomes a platform for deployment of impolite strategies generated to damage the image of the adversary.</p> 2020-05-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Impoliteness and sexist behaviours reproduced by women in the River Plate culture 2020-07-04T04:37:31+00:00 Silvia Kaul de Marlangeon <p>In this study we analyze impolite facework activities arising from sexist verbal behaviors internalized and recreated by women themselves. These behaviors contribute to shaping the feminine social identity in the culture of Rio de la Plata in Argentina. Such facework activities are extracted from a corpus of media discourse collected on the Internet. This research is framed theoretically and methodologically in the sociocultural pragmatics, and in the analysis of impoliteness discourse within Spanish variety of Rio de la Plata. The results show that, on the one hand,&nbsp; sexist and impolite verbal behaviors assumed as their own by women contribute to promoting and propagating the androcentric ideology of the universe of beliefs of these women’s group; on the other, they ensure the survival of cultural premises that represent negative stereotypes of the female social face.</p> 2020-05-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Imaginaries, violence and sexism among Internet users within three Facebook news sites in Mexico 2020-07-04T04:37:34+00:00 Norma Patricia Sepúlveda Legorreta María Eugenia Flores Treviño <p>The virtual spaces, given the characteristics of the interaction that takes place in them, offer a relative freedom or a sense of permissiveness with respect to the norms of conduct established at the socio-cultural level between people. This permissiveness can be observed in the linguistic violence present in social networks. The objective of this work is to show the use of certain discourteous strategies that reproduce or promote aggressive speech and sexist verbal violence in three news sites with pages on <em>Facebook</em>: <em>Animal Politico</em>, <em>Aristegui Noticias</em> and <em>Sin Embargo MX</em>. For this, 150 opinions extracted from the news are analyzed and were motivated by the expressions of two public officials of Mexican politics towards indigenous women. A sociopragmatic and semiotic-discursive approach is developed to show the image activities, strategies, and resources that enunciators use to exercise sexism on those platforms. The trends mostly reflect acts of discourtesy: direct, indirect and by refractoriness and the predominance of threats to the image of civil servants and indigenous women.</p> 2020-05-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Facework activities in the sexist expression of symbolic violence and impoliteness 2020-07-04T04:37:35+00:00 Gabriel Ignacio Verduzco Arguelles Eduardo Ruiz Pérez Stella Maris Rodríguez Tapia <p>This work is part of the joint project of studies on sexism between Mexico and Argentina and is the replica of the pilot study on the analysis of image activities related to behaviors that are preliminary evaluated as sexist and that could be typical of symbolic violence and impoliteness which was presented by Ariel Cordisco, Ph. D. at the XII ALED Congress in Santiago de Chile in october 2017. This replica was performed with the same analytical instrument in which it is required to detail or narrate personal experiences and then react verbally to specific hypothetical situations to evaluate the answers provided. For the application it was necessary to adapt 4 questions of the instrument to the language and contexts of Mexico. Preliminary results of the reply show that there are no statistically significant differences in the responses in the discursive categories related to personality, sexual characterization, work activity, family ties and health.</p> 2020-05-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Violence, objectification and discursive sexism in Mexican band songs. A sociopragmatic study 2020-07-04T04:37:28+00:00 María Eugenia Flores Treviño Julio Hernández Maldonado <p>The influence that excercise over the explicit discourse of songs currently fosters besides a dose of violence towards other human being, a massive harassment about how to objectify women and thus generates sexist imagery. The radio, as a mean of massive broadcasting, causes power, because its capacity to create auditory imagery, gives this mean a visual potential, better that the same&nbsp; TV&nbsp; where videos of these songs are released. This current paper offers a &nbsp;pragmatic, sociopragmatic and semiotic discoursive perspective about how a ethos, a discoursive imagery is constructed where young people mainly, see their desire to obtain status, power, women and beyond that recognition before a peer group, through the lyrics of five songs, the content in the story being told and the video that comes along each song.</p> 2020-06-16T17:06:31+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
