Abstract:Prayers are the means of manifestation through which human beings establish a dialogue with God. We may consider prayers to be dialogues despite the unilateral linguistic expression – in the shape of requests, praises or appreciations –, since the faithful expect as a reply a reward of a different nature than the (verbal) one in which they express the result of psycho-affective experiences. As a variety of specialised (religious) discourse, prayers stand out due to the syncretism of their (verbal and nonverbal) constitutive forms. They unfold according to certain patterns of ritual behaviour, strongly marked by the specificity of the religious and ethnolinguistic civilisation in which they are disseminated / which “professes” them. The aim of this study is to prove the belonging of prayers to the category of expressive speech acts, to determine a semantic taxonomy of prayers and, as an application, to analyse the structure of a prayer taking into consideration the pragmalinguistic coordinates involved in articulating the meaning of the type of discourse under investigation.
Key words:syncretic speech act, semiotic code, religious discourse, ritual, prayer
