The Identity of the Political Language, Compared to other Types of Language

Download PDF

Abstract:

The existence of a political language implies recognising a stability of the linguistic code, outside the concrete situations of communication. Anyone who listens to the speech of a politician ascertains that he uses particular wording and phrases, manifests fondness for specific topics, makes appeal to a specific rhetoric, employs an adequate intonation, all aimed at facilitating the achievement of his objectives. The audience recognises immediately this type of language, which means that the political language has a distinctive identity, at the level of the content and of the expression as well, compared to the other types of language, even if, often, it valorises the contents and the expressions specific to these languages. In our study, we present a contrastive analysis of the political language, compared to other types of language (scientific, philosophical, religious, legal, artistic), aimed at identifying the defining notes, but also the convergence area that exist among them.
