Political talk: wearing a face or a mask?

Free full text available





the article presents a review of the modal tags that mark the political discourse of the candidates Traian Băsescu and Adrian Năstase during the 2004 presidential campaign. The corpus consists essentially of the political discourses present in the television programme Seara pre- edin- Le Soirée des présidents (channel Antena 1, November 2004), and is supplemented by some fragments of discourse or statements by the candidate for US President George W. Bush. The main aim of the analysis is to highlight the linguistic images that place candidates on the linguistic-pragmatic territory of positive or negative will.
