Political Speeches and Discourse Analysis.
Schaffner, Christina
Current Issues in Language and Society, v3 n3 p201-04 1996
Argues that any political action is prepared, controlled and influenced by language. Notes that the study of language has become more central to academic disciplines concerned with politics. Political scientists focus on the consequences of political decisions and actions for a society, whereas linguists concentrate on the linguistic structures used to convey politically relevant messages.
