DIAZ PACHECO, César Marcelo. Disagreements and locutionary similarities in the speech of two social groups. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2011, n.24, pp. 199-223. ISSN 0716-5811. doi: 10.4067/S0716-58112011000200011.
It is a well known fact that people who belong to a particular linguistic community do not speak at a similar way. In this sense, different studies have considered a lot of differences, for which reason, they look for its origin in differents factors : social characteristics of the speaker (like being man or woman, young or adult, and so forth), social characteristics of the interlocutors (for example, to have more or less status that the speaker), the geographic enviroment in which the interaction is developed, and so on. Whithin this framework, this investigation tries to analyze the differences and similarities of phraseological type that exist in the form of speaking of two distinctive social groups of the Fifth Region of Chile. For that reason, two groups of secondary school, one of them belonging to a municipal institution and the other one to a state-subsidiezed institution, were respectively compared. Consequently, a level of sociolinguistic variation is proposed that, apparently, it has not attracted too mucsh attention: the level of phraseological variation.
