Marton PetykoPhD student
My primary research interest lies in the corpus-assisted cognitive pragmatic analysis of discursive community and identity construction in computer-mediated and historical discourses. I am particularly interested in the discursive construction of internet troll and witch as identities. Therefore my current work can be situated in the fields of cognitive and historical pragmatics, (critical) discourse analysis and corpus linguistics.
Discursive construction of troll as an identity on British and Hungarian political blogs
This corpus-assisted contrastive research investigates internet trolling as an intentional behaviour and troll as a discursively constructed identity. My aim is to describe the assumed goals, motives and perceived linguistic actions based on which participants identify other participants as trolls. The research data consists of 250–250 discourses from 50–50 British and Hungarian political blogs in which at least one participant explicitly calls at least one other participant a troll at least once.
