Explorations in Political Discourse

Methodological and Critical Perspectives

by Piotr Cap (Author)
Monographs 226 Pages
Series: Łódź Studies in Language, Volume 4

Summary

The book presents an application of inductive and deductive research modes in an analysis of political discourse. The discussion is illustrated with text samples from inaugural addresses of US presidents and various speeches given by prominent NATO politicians. It is argued that both analytic approaches have their inherent inadequacies, which poses a need for an integrated research mode. Also, numerous observations are made about the rhetoric of the analyzed text types.
