Tactical and strategic characteristics of J.Stalin’s political discourse


The tactical, strategic and verbal analysis of Joseph Stalin’s speeches shows that the political discourse of the “leader” exercises a dramatic manipulative impact on the reader due to its semantic saturation, implemented in numerous communicative strategies and tactics, and deliberate lexical and syntactical repetitions. The lexical, tactical and strategic components of the “leader’s” discourse represent a set of certain recurrent elements which constitute the peculiarity of Joseph Stalin’s oratorical style. The power and effectiveness of Stalin’s speeches are mostly achieved through his methods of "indoctrination"-multiple repetition of an identical set of strategies and tactics, each of which is realized with the help of certain lexical tools.

Key words: 

political discourse, political speech strategy, tactics of political speech, linguistic distinctive features of speech, manipulative effect, Stalin.
