Open peer commentary on the article “Euphemisms vs. Dysphemisms, or How we Construct Good and Bad Language” by Andrey S. Druzhinin. Abstract: The use of fictional performances as data for the study of interactional dynamics is a legitimate research practice. However, it is crucial that, in cases such as the ones offered by Druzhinin, we do not lose sight of the highly constructed nature of the interactions we are examining. The lack of observation of non-verbal dynamics, in his example interactions, often bearing the structural hallmarks of the organizing and purposive intelligence of those responsible for their creation, leaves room for further important analysis.
