Qs: Emotional Appeals in Political Discourse
Editor for this issue: Brent Woo
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

I'll be teaching a directed-readings module on political discourse this
semester. The students would like to dedicate a session to the issue of
emotional appeals in politicians' speeches. Would anyone be able to
recommend 2-3 texts on or relevant to that topic (articles and/or book
chapters, but not whole books) that would be appropriate for an MA-student
without prior exposure to discourse analysis? Thanks very much in advance!
I'll post a summary of replies to the list.
