Linguistic Aspects of Sociopolitical Keywords.
Kahane, Henry; Kahane, Renee
Language Problems and Language Planning, v8 n2 p143-60 Sum 1984
Four aspects of sociopolitical language are: (1) keywords are defined by a movement; (2) a movement, realized in its language, must be analyzed as having both surface and hidden meanings; (3) the propagandistic function of sociopolitical language forces "value" on the keyword; and (4) a movement creates its linguistic field.
