DALTOE, Andréia da Silva. The divulgement of the political discourse: the metaphors by Lula and their forms of interdiction. Ling. (dis)curso [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.3, pp.585-606. ISSN 1982-4017.

In this study the forms of divulging, by the media, the metaphors by Lula (ML) during the period of his presidency of Brazil (2002/2006 and 2006/2010) are discussed from the perspective of Discourse Analysis according to Pêcheux. Based on newspapers and magazines texts, which published the ML during that time/space, it is investigated how most of the meanings attributed to such sayings push them to the room of error, of deviation from the norm, of the absurd and of ignorance, indicating a sort of unfamiliarity in relation to the ML. In this work one observes if such a defamiliarization is a symptom of a shaking of the stabilized meanings of political discourse, while discussing how those meanings divulged by the media in relation to the ML are built as the only possible interpretation.

Keywords : Political discourse; Metaphors by Lula; Media.
