Bakhtiniana: Revista de Estudos do Discurso

On-line version ISSN 2176-4573


SOUSA, João Marcos Cardoso de  and  MACHADO, Ida Lucia. The transgressive function of multiple subjects in speech genres. Bakhtiniana, Rev. Estud. Discurso [online]. 2011, vol.6, n.1, pp. 111-128. ISSN 2176-4573.

This article proposes a reflection on subject and its functionality in the genre. We reflect on the polyphonic effect in multiple utterances which indicates a transgression of genres. Our arguments are based on ideas on genre, polyphony and subject found in the theories of M. Bakhtin (1988), J. Authier-Revuz (2001) and J. Lacan (1998), and we will demonstrate that the effect of such transgression, caused by polyphony, permits the cohabitation of various language subjects in the discourses.

Keywords : Genre transgression; Subject; Polyphony; Speech genres.
