Argumentation and face-threatening acts
The non-literal quotation
This chapter analyses parody in parliamentary discourse as a strategy towards the following objective: disqualifying one’s political enemies. To do this, the politician uses a very useful resource: the non-literal quotation. This form of attack is a very effective manipulation tool, which we must study by relating politeness theory and argumentation. This chapter also studies aggressive and fallacious strategies in relation to the gender of the speaker and the listener, in the context of a discourse traditionally monopolised by men.
