Summary: Recently, the discussion about the use of a gender-neutral language, that do not promote the exclusion of people who do not identify themselves with the binary gender division in male and female, has been gaining space in society. Such theme has been the focus of discussions not only in the academic environment, for instance, with scientific papers and lectures about this form of linguistic expression, but also on the part of the population in general and, also, the Legislative Power, which proposed, in 2020, four projects regarding this subject. In view of the theme relevance nowadays, this study aims to reflect on the use of this form of language from the Bakhtin Circle’s perspective, using the concept of ideological sign proposed by these thinkers. Therefore, we have also analyzed some excerpts of the Law Project No. 5.385, that addresses the gender-neutral language, seeking to dialogue with the motivations and implications of this form of expression. Thus, we understand that such form of language is based on a re-accentuation of ideological signs, resulting from a change in reality, so that the signs become the scene of stress between groups which see the identity as binary and groups that do not.

Tal temática vem sendo foco de discussões realizadas tanto no âmbito acadêmico, a exemplo de artigos científicos e palestras acerca dessa forma de expressão linguística, quanto da população em geral e, inclusive, do Poder Legislativo, que propôs em 2020 quatro projetos a esse respeito. Tendo em vista a relevância do tema na atualidade, o objetivo deste estudo consiste em refletir sobre o uso dessa forma de linguagem a partir da perspectiva do Círculo de Bakhtin, tomando como base o conceito de signo ideológico proposto por esses pensadores. Para tanto, também analisamos alguns excertos do Projeto de Lei n.º 5.385, que trata da linguagem neutra, buscando dialogar com as motivações e implicações dessa forma de expressão. A partir disso, entendemos que tal forma de linguagem se pauta em uma reacentuação dos signos ideológicos, advinda de uma modificação na realidade, de modo que os signos se tornam palco da tensão entre grupos que percebem a identidade como binária e grupos que não a percebem dessa maneira.Editora da PUCRS - ediPUCRS2021-12-31info:eu-repo/semantics/articleinfo:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersionapplication/pdfhttps://revistaseletronicas.pucrs.br/ojs/index.php/letronica/article/view/3986910.15448/1984-4301.2021.4.39869Letrônica; Vol. 14 No. 4 (2021): Re-emphasis, stereotypes and displacements in contemporary times: discourse as a space for social (re)organization; e39869Letrônica; v. 14 n. 4 (2021): Reacentuações, estereótipos e deslocamentos na contemporaneidade: o discurso como espaço de (re)organização social ; e398691984-430110.15448/1984-4301.2021.4reponame:letrônicainstname:Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS)instacron:PUC_RSporhttps://revistaseletronicas.pucrs.br/ojs/index.php/letronica/article/view/39869/27359Copyright (c) 2022 Letrônicahttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccessSeidel, Verônica Franciele2022-01-27T19:15:28ZRevistahttps://revistaseletronicas.pucrs.br/ojs/index.php/letronicaPRI
