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»

En effet, au-delà de leur qualité de journal, les pages écrites par Anne Frank représentent un message de paix, au nom de toutes les personnes opprimées.

1.  Considérations générales sur le journal, comme expression de la vie intérieure

De nos jours une lecture favorite est celle des journaux, qui transmettent la vie intime des auteurs, mais aussi l’essentiel de la société dans ses aspects filtrés par la personnalité des gens voulant noter leur vie au jour le jour. Pour la littérature française, par exemple, nous avons le Journal des frères Goncourt, ou celui de Benjamin Constant, Amiel, Stendhal, Julien Green, Jean-Paul Sartre,...
