Abstract:   (74 Views)
In this article we investigate the characteristic features of political communication in the Republic of South Ossetia. Strategies and tactics for carrying on a political discourse will be examined with the material of press conferences and interviews of south Ossetian politicians, and the methods of their verbalization are considered. Investigation in this area is carried out for the first time, as the discursive analysis and systemic account of south Ossetian political communication is one of the most important and problematic issues within South Ossetian linguistics. In the present article speech strategies and tactics of key political leaders, in particular, the President and the speaker of the parliament of the Republic of South Ossetia and methods of their language realization are dealt with. The basic purpose of the investigation is the disclosure of peculiarities of functioning of political communication in the Republic of South Ossetia. The main method of investigation is discursive-cognitive analysis. Tactic-strategic store of the President and the speaker of the parliament serve for realizing the discourse of power and nation. Unity of the political course of the leaders of the country is manifested by use of dominating strategies-unity, openness/transparency and feedback. Role self-presentation of the representatives of the two branches of the government is sustained in the framework of Ossetic cultural tradition, in accordance with which the President of the Republic of South Ossetia is “the senior” and the speaker is “the junior”.
