ARE BULGARIAN MEDIA FORMAL OR INFORMAL
MetadataShow full item record
The article represents the actual situation in spoken Bulgarian language concerning the use of questions as indirect speech acts. Conclusions are based on data, collected from Bulgarian broadcasting (radio and television) during the last four years (2010 – 2013). The analysis of the empirical data shows that different pragmatic and sociolinguistic factors may dominate in spoken media communication and determine what the speaker chooses – whether an indirect or a direct speech act.
