Keywords:bullying, aggressors, victims, school discourse.
Many scholars have investigated bullying as a social problem in educational institutions. However, just a few scientific works are available attempting to offer the analysis of the linguistic peculiarities related to bullying in school discourse. Since bullying is a violative act expressed verbally or physically to intimidate members of particular society, it is important to consider the linguistic features directly related to the language used by aggressors to harm victims. Consequently, in the present paper, we will explore certain verbal register (words, phrases, linguistic patterns, etc.) generally used by aggressors to insult, threaten or harm victims.
