This paper analyses the use of nominal referential expressions in two texts written by journalist Roberto Pompeu de Toledo, Dona Gildair and O Mercosul e a Taça Libertadores, published in Veja magazine of which he is Especial Editor on April 4th and July 11th 2012, respectively. The dissertation pertains to the Textual Linguistic area of studies, whose definition and development were summarized in the beginning of the work in order to clarify such relation. The general purpose of this paper is to study the key role of referentiation in the process of textual constitution, particularly the argumentative role the nominal referential expressions play as they perform their cognitive-discursive functions. The specific purpose of this dissertation is to analyse the nominal referential expressions built in the texts of the adopted corpus, by underlying the way they serve the author's purpose of saying and his argumentation in the attempt to convince and persuade his readers. As its theoretical framework the paper relies on the conception of text and textuality according to contemporary authors, as well as their conception of referentiation particularly of nominal referential expressions and its role in the constitution of discourse objects and in the argumentation. It is our conclusion that the author successfully uses the resources of argumentation, though he argues that claiming the truth of a given proposition is an unacceptable practice today.
