The present research titled “Memories of the communist ideal in Catalão-GO on the newspaper ‘O Catalão’ (1953)” bases itself on studies of the vocabulary and its interrelation with identity and memory. The main premise is that some traces of people's history and lifestyle can be accessed through their lexicon. The work's corpus is made with six prints of the city newspaper called “O Catalão”, dated of 1953, which are presented in both facsimile and transcript versions. Collected data considered the 50 most recurrent vocabularies to understand how they report the communist ideal. In order to backup the premise that the lexicon can carry these traces, it was proposed an inventory of the main vocabularies and their linguistic development to ease the analysis and confirmations. They were grouped into “Work Relationships”, “National and International Politics” and “Political-Economic Status and Development”. The results reached from the vocabulary inventory analysis and their occurrence rate throughout the research corpus made it possible to confirm the language's property of reflecting history, yearnings and social life of its speakers. In conclusion, the newspaper served effectively to spread and defend the communist ideology for the workers of the region at the beginning of the 50's.
