O vocabulário político-ideológico da Gazeta de Lisboa no século XVIII : estudo do léxico em perspectiva discursiva

Abstract : This thesis provides an analysis of the ideological content expressed through the lexical units of the vocabulary of the first newspaper printed in Portuguese, the Gazeta de Lisboa. It also aims to highlight the linguistic and discursive strategies that are designed socially, and by which users of a language formulate their opinions and points of view through the lexicon. This study is linked to the to the linguistic theory of lexicology, developed in a discursive perspective, based on a dialogical model of enunciation, which believes that words carry the memory of past use and therefore have an intertextual dimension that determines their use according to the circumstances of utterance. We start from the stand point that dialogism is recorded in words, and the choice of language units used in the utterances is made on the basis of the interaction between reality andsense, which is built by the circulation of information in society. We selected 22 lexical units employed in the narration of disagreements or conflicts, relations of meaning between these units were analyzed, as well as the co-occurent lexical units and the ideas more often associated with them in the texts. Next, attention was focused on the discursive study of the occurrences of the word war, and we analyzed some intra-discursive and inter-discursive elements, and the gender. The studies made here prove that the choice of the elements of the lexicon used to name the referents in discourse is partly conditioned by the gender and the discursive practices associated with the words, which together highlight the point of view of the participants in the discourse and the knowledge shared by the society.
