Abstract:[Nicknames in schools – Between playfulness and aggression]
Assigning nicknames has always been a constant of the human spirit, which is genetically set to sanction (in a playful or aggressive way) peers’ exacerbated character traits (mainly negative ones).
The object of the present study consists of the nicknames students give each other, but also those which they bestow on teachers in schools from urban and rural areas. The research will lead to the identification of the main (psychological) causes that generate a certain nickname.
I will illustrate my demonstration with a corpus of 150 nicknames, collected through a sociolinguistic survey. In addition, my considerations will be supported by methodology drawn from psycholinguistics, lexicology, pragmatics (linguistic politeness) and functional grammar.
Although nicknames are not considered forms of address with a high degree of aggression, their being given to students (especially to young ones) is a form of intimidating and threatening their social face, even more so than in the case of adults. Based on a rich and varied corpus, in this approach I propose to update the information on the studied phenomenon (name-calling), as well as to identify the opportunities of ensuring a positive climate in order to eliminate or minimize any form of verbal aggression.
Key words:nickname, playful dimension, agressiveness, school environment
