Introduction
I am Professor in English Linguistics at the University of Granada, Spain. My main research area is CDA, where I focus on the notions of representation and power enactment in public discourse. I have published on language and gender, Irish theatre, and have paid attention to the analysis of the way identity is discursively constructed. I have tried to develop or reconsider some interesting aspects taken from SFG such as Transitivity, Modality or Appraisal (email: ehidalgo@ugr.es).

Linguistic modality is the expression of the speaker’s subjectivity including possibility, probability, necessity, obligation, permission, prohibition, and desire. This paper analyses a learner English corpus collected at two Spanish universities, paying special attention to which linguistic devices (e.g., modal verbs, adjectives, adverbs or nouns)...
Preprint
Recursively in history, emotions such as social anger, moral satiety, distrust of the elite and the Establishment, among others, have all contributed to politicians’ encouragement and exploitation of a rather emotionally charged discourse (Block and Negrine 2017). In their self-imposed capacity as mouthpiece for the people, populist leaders have su...
Article
Drawing on Martin and White’s Appraisal Theory, we study the language of evaluation in a corpus of interviews selected from the archives of The Magdalene Oral History Project. Apart from being deprived of proper food, clothing, and their identity, many of the women who spent their lives in Ireland’s Magdalene institutions had been, or were, sexuall...

Utterance production/interpretation depends unmistakably on emotional contexts. This makes the analysis of emotion in language fascinating and difficult, as it permeates all levels of linguistic description. Martin & White’s (2005) Appraisal Theory is a powerful instrument intended to capture the subtleties of emotion in discourse. Its status as an...
Book
Populist Discourse brings together experts from both linguistics and political science to analyze the language of populist leaders and the media representation on populism in different temporal, geographical and ideological contexts, including Nazi Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Austria, Greece, the UK, the US and South A...
Chapter
In the last decade, the Magdalene Laundries scandal has revealed endemic problems of Irish society. From 1765 to 1996, these asylums run by female religious congregations became prisons for prostitutes, single mothers, abused girls or young ladies allegedly prone to seduction. Forced into these institutions, those women had to work under pseudo-sla...

El 7 de noviembre de 2011 se emite el debate entre los cabeza de lista de los principales partidos a La Moncloa, Rajoy y Rubalcaba. 12 millones de espectadores pudieron ver dos estilos dispares a cuyo análisis nos dedicamos en este artículo. A tal fin, estudiaremos herramientas discursivas que tienen que ver con la estructuración del texto, y con c...

Full-text available
This entry discusses the notion of ?genderlect? as it functions in sociolinguistics. The main features of both male and female linguistic varieties are addressed in the light of what are known as the deficit, dominance, difference, and diversity approaches. The notion's unavoidable association with language stereotypes is made reference to as well.
Article
Full-text available
The last two decades have witnessed very important economic and legislative changes in the Republic of Ireland, which have contributed to both the reinforcement of national beliefs, and the restructuring of traditional values as well as social practices. In this context, the tendency for some extremist groups to attack minorities such as Asians or...
Article
Full-text available
The impetus for this special themed edition of the Irish Journal of Applied Social Studies is a funded research project, in operation from 2012 to 2015, with the title “The Construction of Otherness in the Public Domain: A Critical Study of the Case of Ireland” (FFI2011-25453). Given the latter’s empirical and theoretical focus, this collection of...

Article
Full-text available
During the Celtic Tiger period, Ireland grows faster than the Eurozone only to later suffer the harsh impact of the recession. This coincides with increased in-group essentialism leading to prejudice against minorities (Zagefka et al. 2013). Whilst extremist politicians justify anti-immigration beliefs, racism becomes a problem in Ireland. Attacks...
Article
Full-text available
At the historical moment when the volume edited by M. Martínez Lirola is designed and later on published, its merits seem selfexplanatory. More than ever, the subject matter dealt with in Discourses on Immigration in Times of Economic Crisis: A Critical Perspective is undeniably relevant in the four contexts where it is examined (i.e. Spain, the US...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this paper is to see what Critical Discourse Analysis is. This implies scrutinising its origins, what it has meant to the academic world as a whole, how it encapsulates various trends with different theoretical backgrounds and methodological approaches, what are its limitations and its new developments. A simple practical example will sh...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter is part of a project on the linguistic behaviour of Irish female politicians in the last two centuries. Researchers have argued for the existence of a distinctive female style as compared with a male style (for example Coates 1988, Holmes 1995) and have categorised the differences claimed to distinguish one from the other. The evolutio...

In the present article, I intend to look at information and communication technologies (ICTs), and their use in education, from the perspective of someone who has experienced both their advantages and disadvantages. Notwithstanding some reasonable scepticism about their theoretical miracles, I have decided to commit myself to applying them to my te...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this article is to analyse the strategies that politicians can use in order to defeat their political adversaries. To this end, I have put some ideas developed by discourse analysts to the test, taping some of the speeches, interviews and debates of the 2000 electoral campaign in Andalusia (Spain), scrutinizing the four main candidates’...
Article
Full-text available
The analysis of any topic related to language and gender or sex tends to give rise to a range of somewhat diverse material. The core of the problem is not so much the bias of an approach to such a matter (which is obvious and can be easily identified), as how bias itself may organize human beings’ experience by means of language in use. There exist...

Los llamados discurso femenino y discurso masculino constituyen una cuestión de gran complejidad a la que se le ha dedicado una atención notable en los últimos años. A pesar de ello, ha sido difícil llegar a un acuerdo. En general, las conclusiones alcanzadas siempre dependen del material de estudio elegido. En el presente articulo, hemos tomado co...

This paper aims to reveal some of the reasons why such a phenomenon as the Abbey Theatre turned out to be more than a chance dramatic failure in the recent history of Ireland. Many of the plays performed there frequently embodied an inversion of the most sacred values of a very restrictive ideological construct that would be known as the Irish nati...

When the learning of a sec ond language takes place at ho me with the support of the neighbourhood and local schools, it seems to be learned with relative ease, sometimes automatically. But when the process happens in the classroom, the school social context and the special conditions under which such learning takes place have a decisive inf...
