Abstract:

This book constitutes a significant contribution to political discourse analysisand to the study of silence, both from the point of view of discourse analysis aswell as pragmatics, and it is also relevant for those interested in politics andmedia studies. It promotes the empirical study of silence by analysingmetadiscourse about politicians’ silence and by systematically conceptualisingthe communicativeness of silence in the interplay between intention (to besilent), expectation (of speech) and relevance (of the unsaid). Three cases ofsustained metadiscourse about silent politicians from Germany are analysed toexemplify this approach, based on media texts and protocols of parliamentaryinquiries. Ideals of political transparency and communicative openness areidentified as a basis for (disappointed) expectations of speech which trigger anddetermine metadiscourse about politicians’ silences. Finally, the book dealscritically with the role of those who act as advocates of ‘the public’s’ demand tospeak out.
