Discourse and society: the language in a dialogical perspective
International journal for innovation education and research
This text summarizes a qualitative research of bibliographical nature that aimed to reflect about the language as social practice, emphasizing the dialogical nature of theoretical contributions, such as Bakhtin (2006, 2010) and Fairclough (2001), as well as considerations of Marx (1845) and other authors who recover conceptions of these theorists, including Fiorin (2011), who presents a retelling, especially of Bakhtinian positions. In the social perspective of language, principles that emanate
... from historical, social, cultural and ideological spheres articulate, so that the communication process articulates in fact as a tool to promote human interaction. Regarding discourse, there is need to understand the importance of understanding social and cultural changes, what knowing the context of the discursive subject implies and, consequently, to understand a discursive practice. In the perspective of Fairclough (2001), it is essential to critically analyze the transformations that have occurred in society. The language as social practice is evident in the various discourses, as evidenced by the theoretical positions that support this research. In this perspective, the understanding of the world occurs through the dialogical relationship, in which events of the present, past and future are intertwined, which signals that the discursive practices promote changes in contemporary society.
