Noua limba de lemn a discursului politic

Abstract:The new wooden language that defines the actual political discourse makes use of stereotype formulae as it obsessively repeats some words/ expressions until they become meaningless. This is the inevitable effect of a manner of speaking, that of using “latest fashion terms” in political discourse, on the one hand, and in ordinary speech, on the other hand, both aspects proving a lack of culture and the spreading of bare forms. Apart from this rigid language reflected in the actual political discourse and in the unjustified adoption of foreign words, remains of a wooden language can still be identified today in linguistic violence and emphatic nationalist discourse. On the other hand, there is the reverse phenomenon of a rebellious attitude and anti-stereotype position, also sustained by mass-media.
Key words:stereotype formulae, linguistic violence, nationalism, mass-media
Language: Romanian
