Discourse analysis on the editorial of “politics without principles”




critical discourse, editorial language, political language


Discourse is built by linguistic structures with multidimensional relationships. Relationships in discourse are endophoric-exophoric and anaphoric-cataphoric. Such a relationship implies meaning, both linguistically and in discourse. From the discourse on "Politics without Principles", the third paragraph specifically clearly describes the dichotomy of speech and behavior. If the linguistic meaning and discourse are drawn into politics, then what is essential from a healthy and conscientious politics is a real relationship between speech and behavior.
