Drawing on political discourse from a wide rage of settings and perspectives, this book is set to provide a descriptive and analytical tool for examining political discourse and will be welcomed by anyone interested in discourse analysis in general, and in political discourse in particular. Topics covered in this book include the study of political discourse styles, the use of rhetorical strategies (vocabulary, metaphors, quotations, parentheticals, etc.), the relation between political discourse and society (legitimization, the private-public interface, identities), role of gestures in relation to speech, methods for analysing political discourse, and how to build and exploit a political language corpus.
