Chasing the macho. Qualitative analysis of corpora

The main purpose of this article is to reconstruct the linguistic stereotype of the macho in the Mexican Spanish. The applied methodology is a qualitative analysis of various corpora: Corpus del Proyecto para el estudio sociolingüístico del español de España y de América PRESEEA, Corpus de las Sexualidades de México, Corpus Histórico del Español en México, Corpus del Español Mexicano Contemporáneo CEMC, Corpus de Referencia del Español Actual de la Real Academia Española CREA and Corpus de Español del Siglo XXI CORPES XXI. As a result, we have a description of how the macho should look like, behave, treat women and other men. However, the results prove also that the word “macho” is rarely used by the Mexicans and this conclusion requires further investigation.
