Chapter four: results of the study and discussion 4.1 Part 1 – Discourse analysis The discourse analysis of this study intended to determine whether verbal aggressions were used in the cartoon The Fairly OddParents and if so, find out what type of assaults were used according to the direct and indirect forms mentioned by Lucas et al.
(2008).
The authors comment that different actions could be regarded as direct or indirect aggressions, whether physical or verbal.

2008).
Direct insults, mocking, name-calling, and wanting to hurt others, were considered as forms of direct verbal abuse; ignoring, excluding, lying about others, or speaking badly of others, were considered as forms of indirect verbal abuse. After doing the transcriptions and looking at the dialogues i n The Fairly OddParents, both direct and indirect forms of verbal aggressions were found.
The results obtained will be presented in Spanish since it is the language in which the cartoon is transmitted in Mexico. The results will be presented in two subsections.
The first will show the direct forms of verbal violence and the second the indirect forms of verbal aggressions. 4.1.1 Direct forms of verbal violence. In this subsection, the three categories of indirect verbal aggressions that were found in the discourse of the Fairly OddParents are presented.
