Linguistic impoliteness is a discursive phenomenon that must be analyzed in the context and discursive genre in which it occurs. It follows from the inadequacy of the speech act, taking into account sociodiscursive norms. However, it is part of the political protest and it is socially accepted in this context. The aim is to analyze the discursive construction of impoliteness in public space in Portugal, taking into account political street protests and social networks, to relate impoliteness and discursive genres parameters and to identify ad hominem arguments based on address forms. The corpus consists of impolite statements in Portuguese public space, in posters and slogans in street protests and in social networks.
