Abstract:

This book constitutes a significant contribution to political discourse analysis
and to the study of silence, both from the point of view of discourse analysis as
well as pragmatics, and it is also relevant for those interested in politics and
media studies. It promotes the empirical study of silence by analysing
metadiscourse about politicians’ silence and by systematically conceptualising
the communicativeness of silence in the interplay between intention (to be
silent), expectation (of speech) and relevance (of the unsaid). Three cases of
sustained metadiscourse about silent politicians from Germany are analysed to
exemplify this approach, based on media texts and protocols of parliamentary
inquiries. Ideals of political transparency and communicative openness are
identified as a basis for (disappointed) expectations of speech which trigger and
determine metadiscourse about politicians’ silences. Finally, the book deals
critically with the role of those who act as advocates of ‘the public’s’ demand to
speak out.
