ARAYA SEGUEL, Claudio  y  GONZALEZ RIFFO, Javier. Discourse evaluations regarding same sex marriage discussion in Chile. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2019, n.39, pp.251-274. ISSN 0716-5811.

In recent years some legal changes that seek a new deal towards LGBTI have occurred . However, the discussion on gay or same-sex marriage is stagnated in both the legislative debate and public opinion. From the perspective of the Appraisal theory (Martin and White, 2005), the aim is to identify the ideological stances of those in favor and those against this law through the analysis of two letters to the editor. Some of the main results include a) the notorious contrast of monoglossic and heteroglossic resources used in the letters: one referring to received truths and the other resorting to historical evidence; b) the recurrence of empowering and disempowering strategies to define institutional conflicts; and c) strategies that legitimize their own stances.

Palabras clave : discourse; appraisal; systemic Functional Linguistics; same-sex marriage; letters to the editor.
