According to my intutitions on the topic, I’d say that memes can´t be seen as something universal in what comes to their process of constitution. Since memes are composed by language, they naturally carry on, as containers, and give rise to different and subjective perspectives on how to represent events.Therefore, memes not always share universal constitutive principles.

Studying Brazilian memetic phenomena, based on the principle and theories of Linguistics.
If you have any contributions or would like to exchange some ideas on the topic, please, get in touch!
P.s. My profile avatar represents a very famous Brazilian memetic phenomen: “Que deselegante”
Here is the Youtube video where, at 0:20’’, the anchor says “Que deselegante” ( How impolite) to express her opinion in relation to a live tv news invasion act executed by unknown men: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IB_Nigxxzx0

Hi there, everyone! I´m a MA student and in my study I manage to come up with some contributions on the description of Brazilian memes as an object of study of Linguistics and I’ll also try to provide some descriptions on how they evolve through linguistic/discourse mechanisms. Therefore, my study is based on the Linguistic´s principles and theories. Is there anybody else in here who shares that view or anybody who studies memes from a different perspective? Let´s get in touch! Regards, James
