This paper is about the use of self-referential markers comentário (comment) and opinião (opinion) on journalistic activity related to the text genres in which they occur. On this matter, the text analysis main reference will be the study of Correia & Pereira (2015) stated on the Theory of the Predicative and Enunciative Operations about two texts presented as opinião and as comentário. The authors observed that regarding the thematic content, there is a pre-constructed knowledge, and on an utterance level, there is a rupture between the subject and the enunciator, as well as the occurrence of verb tenses that initiate a rupture with Sit0 for the opinião text, or are anchored on Sit0 for the comentário text. Within the scope of the Socio-Discursive Interactionism, these marks point out the predominance of the following types of discourse: theoretical discourse, in the case of the opinião, and interactive discourse, in the case of the comentário. Considering the socio-discursive work program and an approach which comprises different linguistic analysis levels, several texts presenting the mentioned self-referential markers are analysed, according to the following research hypothesis: in journalistic activity context, do these markers and the texts in which they occur act as the representation of social practices?
