The following points were made: Some scholars suggest that actors from organized civil society have the potential to act as a discursive interface between the two, and in doing so play a vital role in the creation of a global public sphere. The importance in South African public intellectual work of renegotiating the self into a new community, has been explored by Mark Sanders Therefore it is interesting to see to what kinds of stations students listen to and whether they take advantage of the Internet to extend their range of radio programming. New forms of governance were created that expanded the global public sphere to some degree. It makes sense to speak of a kind of censorship that is not performed on the communication but that comes itself from communication see Rodrigues, Intexto, Porto Alegre, v. In particular, the educated, the skilled and the thoughtful among black South Africans were urged to emerge from different locations politically and socially, as intellectuals. And highly-respected public figure Jakes Gerwel, a presidential advisor to Nelson Mandela, remarked in Rapport New ethnicities and the Internet: The movement and its cause have rather been discussed and debated in Op-Eds.

Cruz Alta — RS — Brazil. However, under the supervision of the author himself, this team organized a mix of various writings, turning this work into new material as compared to a simple translation.
From this perspective, many concepts were reviewed or remodeled in this edition, several tables were revised and presented again, according to the current state of the theory, several other reformulations won contemporary hues and the examples were brought to the reality of the Brazilian context. The work is justified for several reasons.
The first presents a reflection on the Discourse, the protagonists of the Language Act and its relation to the discoursive sense; the second highlights basic principles that refer to the discoursive organization of different acts of communication which we face as speaking subjects during our lives.
Aiming to better understand this issue, the professors present a definition as well as a function attributed to them, all properly explained through examples of journalistic texts, literary texts and the internet, as well as textbooks.
In his preface, translated by Angela M. Correa, Patrick Charaudeau himself states that the book is an adaptation work of this Brazilian research group from some of his notes, and expects the material to enable all researchers and teachers, as well as all lovers of language, to analyze the specificities of the discourses that circulate in the Brazilian society, since it is true, according to him, that every discourse is a testament of the cultural specificities of each country.
In making such statement, the author shows the importance of the work to all Brazilian researchers who dedicate part of their time to the study of language and discourse analysis.
The text brings some reflections on what certain linguistic and semiotic theories propose as attitudes toward language, highlighting, among the conclusions, that the communication process is not the result of a single intention, given that it is necessary to consider not only what could be declared intentions of the issuer, but also what says the language act about the particular relation that links the issuer and the receiver.
As a result, the text brings the assertion that a Semiolinguistic Discourse Analysis is semiotic in examining an object that only constitutes itself through intertextuality.
The latter depends on the subjects of the language, seeking to extract possible signifier from it. The text also states that a semiolinguistic discourse analysis is linguistic due to the fact that the instrument used to interrogate the subject is built after a structural concept of work facts developed by those who work with language. In other words, these different attitudes toward language presented by Charaudeau refers to different ways of looking at the objects, the method and the knowledge.
The text draws attention to the fact that it leads the reader to think about certain questions, which summarize the goals of the semiolinguistic proposal. These questionings refer to sign concepts, communication and language competence, and will work, from now on, like axes around which other sections of the book will develop.
As a result, in the first half, it is possible to see the emphasis on the issue of double dimension, explicit and implicit, of the language phenomenon. In a very didactic way, from definitions and examples by means of equations and diagrams, the organizers lead the discussion on the Metadiscursive Nucleus. The dialogic relationship of the speech act, while production and interpretation, is evidenced, for example, by the explanation of contracts and speaking strategies.
Communication situations are presented in detail and the subjects of language are defined: addressee, interpreter, utterer and communicant.
The language act as an inter-enunciative act implies the supposed knowledge that circulates among the protagonists of language; the subject, producer of the language act, and the interlocutor, subject of this act. The issue of production and reception, in relation to the language act as staging, is a central point of the work.
Ending the first part of the book, the researchers state that, in order to analyze a language act, it is important to consider not only the intention of the communicating subject, but also who the text induces to talk or which subjects the text induces to talk, which, from a semiolinguistic perspective, gives rise to possible intepretative doings.
The second part of the book deals with the organization of discourse and is divided into principles of discourse organization, enunciation organization mode, descriptive organization mode, narrative and argumentative organization mode. These five texts are divided into various very didactic topics, presenting illustrative examples, which makes reading easy to understand.
Finally, the book focuses on discoursive staging and genres from reflections involving the subject of communication, texts and genres. Because research in this field of discourse analysis is not yet conclusive, the organizers present a table with some correspondences between modes of discourse and genres. In relation to the enunciation organization mode, the editors, in an emblematic way, return the focus to the protagonists, to the speech beings, internal to language.
Later, the work explains the procedures of this enunciative construction, which are classified as linguistic and discursive. In order to illustrate, some procedures of the first item are presented: interpellation, injunction, authorization, suggestion, appreciation, possibility, proclamation, statement, promise. After showing an illustrative picture of the enunciative construction procedures, describing the relation between enunciative behaviors and the enunciative specifications, as well as the correspondent language categories, each one of these categories of languageis discussed in detail.
In a creative and critical approach, the organizers discuss, at last, the descriptive, narrative and argumentative organization modes, questioning the methodology with which these modes of organization are addressed in school exercises. Aiming to clarify these erroneous approaches, it is possible to imply, in these three final texts the task of defining these modes and their functions. The illustrative examples from different sources, such as newspaper articles, didactic books, literary texts and texts from the internet were efficiently exploited, which can lead teachers to think about the language approaches to be used in class.
It is a work full of merits, among which are worth mentioning the illustrative examples and the didactic way terms are defined. Language and speech can be characterized as instruments to analyse, appropriately, the specifications of the discourses that circulate in Brazilian society.
Besides contributing to the enrichment of discussions on Discourse Analysis, this book disseminates the ideas of Patrick Charaudeau. In this sense, this book is not only intended to scholars of linguistics, but also to all those who wish to better understand the communication process.
