Title: European Parliaments under Scrutiny
Subtitle: Discourse strategies and interaction practices
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2038
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 38
Description:

In the European tradition, parliaments are central political institutions
that play a crucial role in the development of democratic societies. No
other institution regularly offers a public arena for open deliberation and
dissent, for discussing opposite points of view and for reaching compromise
solutions between political adversaries. However, in spite of the growing
visibility of modern parliaments, the study of parliamentary language use,
interaction practices and discourse strategies has long been
under-researched. Based on extensive parliamentary data, this book
integrates a rich variety of innovative analytical approaches that explore
the far-reaching impacts of parliamentary practices and linguistic
strategies on current political action and interaction. Individual chapters
problematise and re-evaluate the discourse-shaped identities and roles of
Members of Parliament, the structure and
functions of parliamentary discourse genres, interpersonal behaviour and
intertextual meaning co-construction in post-Communist parliaments. They
offer broad cross-cultural perspectives on parliamentary discursive
psychology and argumentation. The book provides essential reading for
scholars and students of language and linguistics, rhetoric, political and
social sciences, as well as for anyone interested in language and politics.
