Subjetividad y procesos cognitivos

MALDAVSKY, David. A research of actant features manifested in the webpages of state-owned institutions in hispanic american countries. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.2, pp.55-69. ISSN 1852-7310.

This work proposes a study of some actant features (values, spatiality, leaders), their context and some characteristics of the actantial setting (model, collaborator, rival, object, etc.) inferred from the representations manifested in the webpages of the Central Bank, main National University, the Supreme Court and the EERR Ministry of somewhat more than ten Hispanic American countries. For the study purpose, the work applies the DLA-W, a David Liberman algorithm instrument for the analysis of wishes in words. Results show that Supreme Courts and Universities share two values: order and dignity, and differ because in the first case these values combine with justice and in the second with truth and beauty. Banks, on the other hand, clearly differentiate themselves from the former by privileging other values such as profit and love, and EERR Ministries by privileging dignity. Additional actant features and their range as well as of the actantial setting manifested in the representations of the webpages are detailed.

Keywords : Actant; Values; Spatiality; Institution.
