Word Count: 6262 INTRODUCTION Politics is concerned with power, and the language that politicians use reflects their craving for it.
Through language politicians hope to make decisions that will influence other people's behaviour and even their values.Much background reading was done into politics and the English language, including "The Language of Politics" by Adrian Beard and George Orwell's "Politics and the English Language", in order to gain a deeper insight into this distinct style of language."The Language of Politics" highlights the different stances that political parties may take e.g.The infinitive verb "to call," when used with the concrete noun "friends" implies that the party has humanity and can relate to the British public.This structure therefore gives the public an overall view of Labour's qualities that make them fit to govern.Power can be gained in many ways, in a dictatorship by force, in a democracy through law, or often a much more successful technique; through the power of persuasion.This method is often found in political speeches, and is used to coerce people into embracing a politician's goals.For a bit of fun, we have some spellings for you to complete at the beginning of each tutorial to keep you on your toes.
