This article considers the linguistic and communicative structure of injustice. According to the author, the cultural and social conditions characteristic of ad-vanced modernity have put claims for justice beyond appeal. One of the main causes for this situation is the formalism of modern jurisprudence, which has been restricted to specialists. The power of this specialist culture reduces language to a functional level, preventing any form of communicative interaction. Injustice therefore can only be disclosed by the invisible humiliation and the silence of those who have been excluded from the community of speech.
