Manipulating Language: Metaphors in the Political Discourse of Georgios Papadopoulos (1967-1973)
MetadataShow full item record
The manipulation of language to achieve one’s aims leads us to the important assertion that through speech politicians do indeed aim at achieving a given outcome from a society. One way they achieve this is by painting a picture through metaphor of that society in the present, as well as in the past and the future. The examination of metaphor in the political discourse of Georgios Papadopoulos and the analysis of it is an attempt to determine how the manipulation of such rhetoric can be effective, if at all, in a given social, historical and political context.
