Discurso político y crispación : simplificación y superficialidad argumental

Translated title of the contribution: Political discourse and tension :: simplification and argumentative superficiality

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The instances of enunciation in the political discourse carried out in the sustained scenarios of political life during the periods of legislatures present various obscure zones. This situation makes it necessary to distinguish the use of surface language and, therefore, of the manifestation of speech and its correlation, incoherence, mismatch or imprecision with the semantic-ideological content to which it refers. In this article we present a reflection on the transformations that have arisen in the ways of doing politics in the Spanish political scene, and the discourses that accompany it, based on the strategies followed in the argumentative structures, the derived statements and actions and the actors who carry it out. It is interesting to determine the practice followed through conversational dialogic simulations with an effect of closeness and immediacy, resolved in a few lines or paragraphs, with direct access and that are transformed into sentences, almost slogans, with the intention of looking for impact and perlocution contained in an encapsulated message.
