Approches linguistiques à la notion de crise / Approcci linguistici al concetto di crisi / Enfoques lingüísticos sobre el concepto de crisis

Daniela Pietrini and Kathrin Wenz

En considérant la « crise » comme une notion discursive, ce volume se propose de reconstruire sa conceptualisation du point de vue de sa mise en langage. Les auteurs explorent les différentes façons de raconter la crise économique avec son lexique (européismes, néologismes, phraséologismes), les métaphores, les topoï discursifs et les stratégies d’euphémisation et d’interdiction linguistique, tout en mettant en relation la construction linguistique de la crise avec les contextes extralinguistiques propres aux pays concernés.

Partendo dalla considerazione della crisi come nozione discorsiva, questo volume si propone di ricostruirne la concettualizzazione in ambito romanzo dal punto di vista della sua costruzione linguistica. Gli autori esplorano i vari modi di raccontare la crisi economica con il suo lessico (europeismi, neologismi, fraseologismi), le metafore, i topoi discorsivi e le strategie eufemistiche e di interdizione linguistica, mettendo in relazione la costruzione linguistica della crisi con i rispettivi contesti extralinguistici.

Teniendo en cuenta la "crisis" como un concepto discursivo, este volumen se propone reconstruir su conceptualización desde la perspectiva de su lenguaje. Los autores exploran el fenómeno mediante el léxico (europeísmos, neologismos), las metáforas, los topoi discursivos y varias estrategias eufemísticas. Así se pone en relación la construcción lingüística de la crisis económica con los contextos extralingüísticos específicos de cada país analizado.

Catástrofe natural o comedia nacional: Representaciones lingüísticas de la crisis económica en la prensa española y en foros de internet

Abstract: This paper analyzes how conceptual metaphors are used to describe the economic crisis in Spain and the subsequent breakdown of Spain’s largest property company, Martinsa-Fadesa, in a corpus of Spanish newspaper articles. The findings are contrasted with conceptual metaphors found in a Spanish Internet forum thread about the same topic. The findings suggest that the press tends to describe the crisis-related events as phenomena beyond human intervention or responsibility, similar to natural disasters or health contagions. While these metaphors are also found in the Internet forum; the forum participants are as likely to interpret the events as a play staged by politicians, finance and business managers, a conceptualization absent in the press discourse. In the forum, fault for the crisis and the subsequent events is placed predominantly on the same actors.
