Linguistic standard and prepositional and adverbial systems https://asice.se/index.php/tep/article/view/301 <p>The following paper aims to offer a comparative study between the description of the prepositional an adverbial systems in Gonzalo Correas’ <em>Arte de la lengua Española castellana </em>and the uses that can be found in a textual corpus extracted from the CODEA platform chronologically close to the publication of the grammar. In order to do so, we will start with some reflections on linguistic standard regarding the ideas and aims that led the author to write this work. As it is well known, the prepositional and adverbial payroll have been subject to variation throughout the evolution of Spanish, which makes the grammatical description of ancient authors particularly interesting from an historical and linguistic point of view.</p> Ana Recio Doncel ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-07-27 2022-07-27 8 1 1 18 10.17710/tep.2022.8.1.1reciodoncel Representations of change in Cambiemos government´s Operativo Aprender results and discourses on educational reforms https://asice.se/index.php/tep/article/view/322 <p>Within the framework of Discourse Analysis (Fairclough, 1992), the general objective of this article is to study how the need for educational reform is constructed discursively in five discourses produced by the Cambiemos government. Specifically, we propose to analyze the discursive strategies (Menéndez, 2012) that allow them to represent global changes that are used as justification for these reforms and to study what metaphors (Lakoff and Johnson, 2015 [1980]) are activated to think about these changes, as well as educational changes being proposed for high school. In our corpus, we identify different discursive strategies that help to represent global change as unquestionable, impossible to stop and self-generated. Additionally, this global change is conceptualized through a <em>metaphor of</em> <em>movement </em>in which different abstract agents “move” fast over people. Educational change is also understood through this type of metaphor, because a <em>movement</em> of the school towards that changing world is proposed. A third <em>movement</em> is associated with student learning, presented as a <em>journey</em>. Finally, educational change is conceptualized as a <em>revolution</em> in which an old or current school model is supposedly modified by a new and future one.</p> Alana Vanina Venturini ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-07-27 2022-07-27 8 1 19 41 10.17710/tep.2022.8.1.2venturini Las reseñas de TripAdvisor: ¿un nuevo género de discurso turístico? https://asice.se/index.php/tep/article/view/369 <p>In this paper we present the results of a descriptive-interpretative analysis of some reviews about Spanish hotels and restaurants published on one of the most prominent travel review sites, <em>TripAdvisor.</em> The aim of the study is to examine linguistic common features that appear in guests’ opinions and hotel responses. In the same time, we try to emphasize the most important features of a review in order to find out if it can be considered part of tourist discourse and, if so, to generate a new specialized form of communication. Qualitative data from corpora denote that TripAdvisor reviews fulfil the typical functions of tourist discourse (informative, prescriptive and persuasive), with a special prominence of the last one. In addition, the tourist review seems to be the ideal framework to underline the most common pragmalinguistics strategies to describe and to advice the users’ tourist experience.</p> Claudia Colantonio ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-07-27 2022-07-27 8 1 42 59 10.17710/tep.2022.8.1.3colantonio La coherencia causal en relatos infantiles de experiencia personal. Un estudio con niños argentinos hablantes de español https://asice.se/index.php/tep/article/view/316 <p>Several studies have highlighted the relevance of narrative discourse, especially narratives of personal experience, for cognition, literacy, socialization, and schooling. The achievement of narrative coherence is a key factor in the development of this type of discourse. Although causality is an essential dimension of coherence, no studies were identified that specifically examined causal coherence in Spanish-speaking children’s personal narratives. This paper aims to study causal coherence in narratives of personal experience produced by 66 Argentinian Spanish-speaking children aged 3, 4 and 5 years. For the analysis of the narratives, we used a heuristic approach of an adapted version of Trabasso et al.'s Causal Network Narrative Model, and we employed the Kruskal Wallis test to make comparisons between age groups. Results showed an increase according to age in the degree of complexity and coherence of the causal organization of the narratives and provide evidence of the potential use of the model as a tool to infer how children causally relate individual events in their mental representation of the sequence that underlies the production of narratives of personal experience.</p> Ailín Paula Franco Accinelli Alejandra Stein Celia Renata Rosemberg ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-07-27 2022-07-27 8 1 60 88 10.17710/tep.2022.8.1.4franco_stein_rosemberg Language as a condition of the subject: a proposal for L2 acquisition from structural interactionism https://asice.se/index.php/tep/article/view/372 <p>In the field of second language acquisition (SLA), different theoretical and methodological frameworks coexist, not always free of frictions. In this paper we present the epistemological notions of <em>language</em>, <em>acquisition</em> and <em>method</em> underlying the main theories in this area, based on studies of first language acquisition (L1). These theories are <em>generativist</em> or <em>innativist</em>, <em>cognitivist</em> or <em>interactionist</em>, <em>constructivist</em> and <em>sociocultural</em>. From here, we will present our proposal in process (Bruzzo, 2020): a research in Spanish as a second and foreign language (ELSE, in Spanish), based on Claudia de Lemos' L1 acquisition theory (2000a, 2000b, 2002), <em>structural interactionism</em> and its methodology, French-Brazilian <em>discourse analysis</em>. Finally, we will point out the results obtained, in order to glimpse how the conception of <em>acquisition</em> understood as a process of <em>capture</em> and <em>subjectivation </em>would be reflected in a possible theory of ASL.</p> María Virginia Bruzzo Hugo Roberto Wingeyer ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-07-27 2022-07-27 8 1 89 104 10.17710/tep.2022.8.1.5bruzzo_wingeyer Español https://asice.se/index.php/tep/article/view/315 <p>The article presents a review of the category of ethos, making a counterpoint with the materialist theory of discourse developed by Michel Pêcheux. In this regard, he proposes that enunciative theories centered on ethos grant a certain sovereignty to the enunciating "I". However, in "The evident truths" the approaches centered on the "speaker" or "enunciatorx" are problematized and it is pointed out that it is necessary to explain the way in which the individual interpellation is carried out as the subject of his speech . The formulation of a theory of Interdiscourse becomes relevant, then. This also implies paying attention to psychoanalytic theory, specifically, to reflection on the imaginary dimension that allows us to understand how the subject is constituted as a “subject of discourse”. Thus, rather than closing a debate, the materialist theory of discourse is explored and asks some questions that need to be thought through.</p> Daiana Masin ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-07-27 2022-07-27 8 1 105 115 10.17710/tep.2022.8.1.6masin
