Evaluating discursive relations in Brazilians’advice-giving

Janice Helena Chaves Marinho


This paper investigates how some participants of a reality show, which featured on Brazilian television from January to April, 2004, produce and interpret discourse relationships. It will focus on the discursive relations among textual segments as well as on the pragmatic bonds between these segments and implicit information, all of which often signaled by linguistic elements, such as discourse markers. These linguistic elements contribute to the co-construction of text meaning since they point to a specific meaning relation among whatever potential meanings conveyed by the discourse content. This paper will also consider different discourse dimensions (syntactic, semantic and discursive) in order to investigate the properties of such linguistic elements and their function in the production of advisive speech acts.
