VALLEJOS, Patricia y PALMUCCI, Daniela. Resources in scientific popularization for children: Verbal and visual construction of nonsense. Anclajes [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.2, pp. 79-102. ISSN 1851-4669.
scientific popularization for children has been enriched, in the last decade, with new and varied written and visual resources as effective means in the passage from common sense to scientific knowledge. Among these resources, we analyse, in a book series for children in school age, the meaning potential of nonsense in its rhetorical performance in written and visual texts. The theoretical and methodological approach integrates a traditional view of rhetorical analysis with the systemic-functional perspective developed by Michael Halliday, as well as Gunther Kress and Theo van Leeuwen´s grammar of visual design.
