Description In this paper we analyze a few fragments of Octavio Paz’s literary essays. This analysis is aimed to propose a pragmatic-semantic study of specific utterances, which contains a study of irony as a linguistic argumentative instrument. The analysis is based on two main theories: on the one hand, the argumentation theory stated by Anscombre and Ducrot, and on the other hand, the relevance theory developed by Sperber and Wilson. The most important claims and concepts of each theory are presented in order to construct a suitable theoretical framework which allows us to describe different kinds of ironies and their argumentative and cognitive effects on readers.Key words: irony, argumentation, pragmatics, literary essay, Octavio Paz.
En este trabajo se analizan algunos fragmentos de la obra ensayística de Octavio Paz. El análisis consiste en hacer una descripción pragmática de las obras, en la que se propone un estudio de la ironía como medio de argumentación lingüística, basado en dos importantes teorías: la teoría de la argumentación en la lengua de J.C Anscombre y O. Ducrot, y la teoría de la relevancia formulada por D. Sperber y D. Wilson. Para lograr este análisis se exponen perspectivas teóricas y se entrelazan en un marco teórico aplicable al análisis pragmático y semántico de los ensayos seleccionados.Palabras clave: ironía, argumentación, pragmática, ensayo literario, Octavio Paz.
