The Languages of Politics/La politique et ses langages now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing
Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of The Languages of Politics/La politique et ses langages (in 2 volumes), edited by Marta Degani, Paolo Frassi, Maria Ivana Lorenzetti.
The Languages of Politics/La politique et ses langages provides a multifaceted view of major approaches to the study of political discourse from an interdisciplinary perspective. To date, most contributions to the analysis of political discourse have come from the fields of rhetoric, (critical) discourse analysis, cognitive linguistics, pragmatics, lexicology, lexicography, and, more recently, multimodal discourse analysis. The papers in this volume build their investigations on these perspectives, and provide new and diversified insights into this vast area of research. Besides considering multiple approaches, the book also adds to the current debate on the languages of politics by combining a range of theoretical and methodological considerations, and by featuring contributions in both English and French.
