This project's objective is to comprehend possible impacts of the extreme social marginalisation in enunciations and in the speech interactions between the homeless population, considering the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic in social inequality indexes as well as an increase in the overall homeless population in Brazil. The main question of this research is: what are the enunciative specificities between homeless people caused by "non-listening"? The analysis will be based on the theoretical pieces of the Bakhtin Circle, especially the ones by Valentin Volochinov and Mikhail Bakhtin, in which the authors consider the language according to a social, economical and historical reality, which allows an accurate scope of the research corpus: four videos in which homeless individuals are filmed and that were produced by the NGO SP Invisível during the period of social isolation due to the pandemic. Those videos will be analysed in their verbal and extraverbal aspects.(AU).
