ARAYA SEGUEL, Claudio. The toilet paper collusion: lexical fields in news comments of a Chilean newspaper. Logos [online]. 2016, vol.26, n.2, pp.137-147. ISSN 0716-7520.

In October 2015 the scandal of the so-called “collusion of toilet paper” was uncovered. Since it is a recent event, no studies have analyzed this controversial case from a lexical point of view. In order to analyze the underlying discourse, a set of comments related to two pieces of news published in La Tercera newspaper was examined. From the configuration of lexical fields present in these comments, the results show that the iden-tified fields usually contain semantic features associated with abuse, damage, injury and felony. These lexi-cal fields convey social representations and beliefs about both social stakeholders and the event, allowing to notice how a kind of discourse of resistance is lexically articulated (Chilton & Schäffner, 2001).

Palavras-chave : lexical representations; lexical field; corruption.
