The Rhetoric of Political Corruption: Sociolinguistic, Dialectical, and Ceremonial Processes.
Gronbeck, Bruce E.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v64 n2 p155-72 Apr 1978, Apr78
Examines the public discourse surrounding political corruption by arguing that the ritualistic deposition of corrupters is based in a sociolinguistic process of assigning meanings to acts, a dialectical process of contrapositioning competing voices, and a ceremonial process of acting out the drama of purgation before the affected institutions and/or the society at large.
