The Mechanisms of Argumentation in Political Discourse: A Reading of the Speech of two Prime Ministers, Al-Maliki and Al-Ebadi
The research entitled "The Mechanisms of Argumentation in the Iraqi Political Discourse: A Reading of the Speech of two Prime Ministers, Al-Maliki and Al-Ebadi" at the handover of the premiership from the first to the other is an attempt to show the impact of the effectiveness of argumentation and its mechanisms in the manifestation of political discourse in general and the Iraqi one in particular. The paper also aims to find out the linguistic dimensions of the political discourse through the manipulation of the arts of speech and its performative skills in delivering the speech to the public. Two samples of contemporary Iraqi political discourse were chosen for reading and analysis to show the points of similarities and differences between them in employing the mechanisms of argumentation that fit the nature of each sender and his rhetorical type and the extent of its reflection on the recipient.
