Nominare per perifrasi: alcuni spunti a partire da un’analisi pragmatica sulle slot machine

Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review


This shorts paper arises from some casual remarks within a pragmatic research on the onomastic features of the slot machine names. By analysing a series of recorded phone calls of retailers from Palermo asking for maintenance service assistance, the present work shows the interesting habit (or rather, the inclination) to refer to slots machines, generally named through English ideonyms, through periphrases dealing with the content of each game. Thus, through a peculiar overlapping of linguistic codes, the name Fowl Play Gold turns into “the one of eggs” or “the one with chickens”.
