Abstract

ARANCIBIA AGUILERA, María Cristina  and  MONTECINO SOTO, Lésmer Antonio. BLOG COMMENTS TO OPINION ARTICLES: A GENRE IN CONSTANT RECONSTRUCTION. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2013, n.28, pp.123-147. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112013000200008.

The objective of this article is to provide an overview of the genre of online blogs to comment on opinion columns and editorials published in Chilean ciber newspapers. At present, the ciber citizen is the focus of interest of an increasing number of mainstream means of communication. Many of them provide bloggers with access to post their comments on blogs, inviting the public to express their views on the content of editorials, opinion columns and news stories. In this context, it seems intriguing the nature of comments generated by editorials and opinion columns. Online paper blogging has allowed for the re-emergence of deliberative democracy understood as the exchange of views about contingent issues in a context of relative mutual respect. Through a revisión of recent research that include studies conducted in the last seven years, the purpose of this article is to define and characterize the commentary blogs in online cyber-newspapers in terms of their conditions of production, discourse and textual structure to finally provide an overview of the social purpose that the blogs of commentaries have as a social practice.

Keywords : cibe-newspapers; blogs; genre; commentary; discourse community; civic participation.
