Definition of Antilocution

Antilocution Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Antilocution is a form of discrimination in which negative verbal remarks against a person, group, or community, are made (in a public or private setting) and not addressed directly to the target. American psychologist Gordon Allport first used this term in his 1954 book, The Nature of Prejudice, to label the first of the five degrees of antipathy that measure discrimination. Antilocution is similar to the rather common form of betrayal in which a person "talks behind someone's back.", but antilocution involves an in-group ostracizing an out-group on the basis of race, ethnicity, or nationality.
