A Contrastive Analysis of Exclamations in Selected Italian and Polish Gaming Videos on YouTube
MetadataShow full item record
The present paper proposes an analysis of exclamations, primarily obscene words, identified in the spoken Italian and Polish of selected gaming videos on the video hosting website YouTube. The author contrasts the exclamations collected in his previous study with new material of the same nature in Italian. The analysis reveals considerable differences in the type of exclamations employed by the Italian and the Polish vloggers. In the Polish material there are a great number of borrowed English obscene words, whereas practically no such items are found in the Italian material. The author speculates about the possible reasons as to why such a discrepancy occurs.
