Sample text

The superaddressee may be personified as God or imagined as the voice of history, but strictly speaking it is a constitutive factor of the utterance itself. We implicitly address this perfect listener as well as the real one before us. The superaddressee also figures in our inner speech, where again it may be personified. The idea of addressivity allows Bakhtin to analyze a series of utterances that may look linguistically or stylistically simple but that are in fact complex when we consider them as part of a dialogue.

Some typical forms of addressivity may coalesce into speech genres, and to learn a language involves learning those genres. Speech genres differ from language to language and change over time (see Genre and Genre Analysis). For Bakhtin, the idea that utterances may change as they are being made suggests that addressivity presumes a speaker truly ‘present’ and ethically ‘responsible’ (literally ‘answerable’ in the original Russian) for what he says and a listener present and responsible for how he listens.

It is essentially joint property. Bakhtin offers a series of examples, drawn from Dostoevsky’s novels, of utterances whose whole point and stylistic shape would be missed without considering addressivity. In ‘the word with a loophole,’ for instance, the speaker deliberately exaggerates a self-characterization so that, if the response is undesired, the utterance allows Addressivity 15 him to pretend after the fact that it was parodic or unserious. The utterance builds into itself future utterances to more than one possible response.
