Languages of Politics

This edited collection consists of research papers dealing with different interdisciplinary subtopics from the multifaceted interplay between language and the political sphere. Being intertwined and thus inseparable, language and politics have received a lot of scholarly attention in the last 30 years. The papers published in this collection are at the intersection of several disciplines including critical discourse studies, political science, media, political psychology and sociology. They report on cutting-edge empirical research with discursively communicated political ideas and politicians’ utilization of language to persuade the voters to think, behave and vote in a certain way. The papers comprise quantitative, qualitative or mixed methodological approaches (re)addressing multiple social theories and perspectives and challenging existing paradigms. They contribute to burgeoning discussions of theoretical approaches and nuanced case studies in the field placing language as the central medium of politics.
