Critical Discourse Approaches and Modernity: Some Reflection
The speeches analyzed as example are from the Chamber of Deputies in the 54th legislature and their themes were egalitarian marriage; the speeches are related to the decision of the Federal Supreme Court and National Council of Justice on same-sex marriage. I make an analysis from the Systemic-Functional Linguistics, with the observation of the Appraisal System, which focuses on the observation of the attitude of the speakers to what is being said, as of the engagement and graduation of them with what they say.
In conclusion, this work provides a view of possible developments of Critical Discourse Analysis as an analytical tool to sociological investigation, reaffirming its possibilities inter and transdisciplinary. In a changing world, Critical Discourse Analysis is able to cover many sociological approaches, being a strong ally in order to comprehend the liquidity of the social and theoretical changes of contemporaneity.
