Hate Speech or Divisive Language

  • Elena Tarasheva
Keywords: hate speech, corpus-assisted discourse analysis, media, corpora, key words


The article analyses a specialized corpus of texts by a Bulgarian radio host to establish what language items qualify as hate speech. Definitions of hate speech are adapted from the political sphere and given a linguistic dimension within a framework of corpus-assisted critical discourse analysis. The concordances of key words in the corpus are searched for labelling, namecalling, denotation-shifting etc.
