Abstract [en]

Garbage – that which is excluded, put aside, hidden, buried, taken out of sight, and rejected – isthe starting point of this paper. Approached as refuted matter, garbage circulates betweenprivate and public arenas, between centers of power and forgotten peripheries. Approached as asocial metaphor, garbage marks the limits between categories, between those things and peopleconsidered to have value, and those considered to be useless and disposable. In this paper, Idiscuss the use of language as a strategy for social positioning by analyzing some everydayinteractions taking place among women from different social classes gathered during fieldworkin Southeastern Brazil. As I show, when practiced in asymmetric interactions, these « garbagespeeches » not only classify people in terms of status and value, but also reinforce alreadyexisting differences. At focus in the present analysis are oral practices of social positioning wherestatus and social exclusion are harshly negotiated.

Abstract [fr]

Le « rebut » – ce qui est exclu, mis de côté, caché, enterré, ôté de la vue, rejeté – est au point dedépart de cet article. Considéré comme matière repoussée, il circule dans les espaces publics etprivés, entre les centres de pouvoir et les périphéries oubliées. Vu comme métaphore sociale, ilmarque les limites entre catégories, entre ce, celui ou celle qui ont de la valeur et ce, celui oucelle qui sont inutiles, bons à jeter. Je m’interroge ici sur l’usage de la parole comme stratégie depositionnement social grâce à l’analyse de quelques interactions du quotidien entre femmes declasses sociales différentes, recueillies à diverses périodes d’un travail de terrain dans le Sud-estbrésilien. Comme je le montre, les « voix du rebut », lorsqu’elles sont pratiquées dans desinteractions asymétriques, non seulement classent les individus en terme de statut et de valeur,mais aussi renforcent la différence entre des personnes occupant des positions sociales inégales.J’analyse ici les jeux oraux de positionnement lorsque le statut et l’exclusion sociale sontdurement négociés.

Abstract [pt]

Lixo – aquilo que é excluído, posto de lado, escondido, enterrado, retirado do foco de atenção,rejeitado – é o ponto de partida do presente artigo. Visto como matéria rejeitada, o lixo circulaentre arenas públicas e privadas ; entre centros de poder e periferias esquecidas. Visto comometáfora social, o lixo marca limites entre categorias, entre aquilo e aquelas(es) que têm valor eaquilo ou aquelas(es) que são inúteis, descartáveis. Discuto aqui o uso da fala como estratégia deposicionamento social através da análise de algumas interações cotidianas entre mulheres dediferentes classes sociais, coletadas durante diversos períodos de trabalho de campo no sudeste brasileiro. Como será mostrado, as « falas do lixo », quando praticadas em interaçõesassimétricas, não só classificam indivíduos em termos de status e valor, como também reforçam adiferença entre pessoas ocupando posições sociais desiguais. Analisa-se aqui jogos orais deposicionamento onde status e exclusão social são duramente negociados.
