Abstract:The paper examines some impoliteness forms in the parliamentary session debating the proposal of President T. Băsescu’s suspension from office. The analysis aims at discussing some theoretical aspects concerning the definition and the main strategies of in absentia impoliteness in an institutional setting. Two main sets of distinctions, operating at different levels, are proposed: (1) straightforward vs. mitigated impoliteness, expressing the general manner of approaching the target of attacks, as reflected in the speaker’s choice of the grammatical person; (2) on record vs. off record impoliteness, having in view speaker’s strategies of doing FTAs. Accordingly, in absentia impoliteness belongs mainly to the mitigated type, on record and off record strategies appearing quite often interwoven in the same discursive sequence.
