Pragmatic aspects in AVT: A corpus-driven discourse approach
Our effort aims to explore how racism is manifested in (English) fi lm discourse and how it is rendered cross-linguistically in an attempt to investigate shifts that take place and norms obtaining in Greek and Spanish AVT. This paper focuses on racial slurs, construed here as words or phrases used to disparage others on the grounds of race, ethnicity or religion and on their translations, and takes a step further to investigate their culture-boundness. We use a trilingual corpus and corpus tools for textual analysis, as well as reference corpora to compare our study corpus findings to general language.
