In the European tradition, parliaments are central political institutionsthat play a crucial role in the development of democratic societies. Noother institution regularly offers a public arena for open deliberation anddissent, for discussing opposite points of view and for reaching compromisesolutions between political adversaries. However, in spite of the growingvisibility of modern parliaments, the study of parliamentary language use,interaction practices and discourse strategies has long beenunder-researched. Based on extensive parliamentary data, this bookintegrates a rich variety of innovative analytical approaches that explorethe far-reaching impacts of parliamentary practices and linguisticstrategies on current political action and interaction. Individual chaptersproblematise and re-evaluate the discourse-shaped identities and roles ofMembers of Parliament, the structure andfunctions of parliamentary discourse genres, interpersonal behaviour andintertextual meaning co-construction in post-Communist parliaments. Theyoffer broad cross-cultural perspectives on parliamentary discursivepsychology and argumentation. The book provides essential reading forscholars and students of language and linguistics, rhetoric, political andsocial sciences, as well as for anyone interested in language and politics.
