Abstract

At the crossroads of different theoretical approaches and in continuation of a previous reflection on the subject, this article aims at analysing the grillese, a neologism created in 2007 by the medias referring to the vocabulary used by Beppe Grillo, founder of the M5S, to address his followers under the sign of spectacularization and through emotional appeal. In particular it will point out a series of distinctive features which characterize a specific community – the M5S – and which correspond to patterned actions typical of a peculiar knowledge based on topics which are supposed to use socio-discursive behaviours in public spaces. Claiming it to be « true language » belonging to « the Country’s guts», the grillese oscillates between the pathemic and somatic and, at a closer look, it seems to have started a new kind of language, a sort of « newspeak of democratic regimes » – quoting Oustinoff – that from public to virtual space passes from mouth to mouth, from blog to blog, without any argumentative aim or a veritable subject of enunciation.
À la croisée de différentes approches théoriques complémentaires et tout en prolongeant une réflexion déjà entreprise, cet article se propose de revenir sur le grillese, néologisme forgé en 2007 par les médias pour désigner le lexique avec lequel Beppe Grillo, fondateur du M5S, fédère ses adeptes sous le signe de la spectacularisation et de l’appel aux passions. Il s’agira, plus précisément, de dégager un ensemble de (hors)normes qui sont distinctives d’une communauté donnée – le M5S – et qui correspondent à des schémas d’actions relevant d’un savoir propre, fondé sur des topiques censées orienter dans l’espace public les conduites socio-discursives. Revendiqué comme un « parler vrai », appartenant au « ventre du Pays », le grillese oscille entre le pathémique et le somatique, et semble décliner, à y regarder de plus près, une nouvelle manifestation de la langue de bois, une sorte de « novlangue des régimes démocratiques » – pour le dire avec Oustinoff – qui de la place publique à la place virtuelle du web passe de bouche en bouche, de blog en blog, sans postuler, en réalité, aucune visée argumentative ni de véritables sujets énonciateurs.
