Information and Persuasion

Studies in Linguistics, Literature, Culture, and Discourse Analysis

Edited By Maria-Ionela Neagu and Domnita Tomescu

This transdisciplinary study gathers research papers that reveal the multifarious facets of the concept of «persuasion». It is argued that regardless of its degree of intentionality, the act of persuasion underlying each information item prompts the interlocutors to cross the borders of political, historical, linguistic, narrative, psychotherapeutic, and even marketing configurations. The contributors’ contention is that political thinking and ideology-grounded linguistic patterns act as a form of social control, both informing and shaping the sense of identity of the manipulated masses and of the oppressed.

«Taking a sociolinguistic turn, this volume of interesting scholarly works addresses matters of ideological loadings in a variety of genres, contributing to the development of new research paradigms.» – Bledar Toska, University of Vlora «Ismail Qemali»

Les verbes persuasifs en roumain

Abstract: This article analyzes the Romanian verbs expressing the act of persuasion (persuasive verbs), their specialization in the argumentative discourse and their possible inclusion into the general verbal typology from two different perspectives: semantically, as verbs of action expressing and serving persuasion, opposed to dissuasive verbs, and pragmatically, as performative, perlocutionary, causative verbs.
