Abstract

The paper overviews the notion of acid com- munication and analyzes its multimodality and its relation with emotions by providing a theoretical framework of it in terms of cognitive of goals and beliefs. Then, a quantita- tive–qualitative study is presented using a lexicographic analysis. A questionnaire was submitted to participants, and its qualitative analysis showed that the idea of acid communication has a psychological reality: subjects can recognize it and provide examples of it; they define it, describe it, and attribute it to specific emotional causes in a consistent manner. Acid communication is a sort of half- inhibited aggression, expressed subtly or indirectly, caused by a mix of emotions like anger, bitterness, revenge, and impotence.
