Abstract

BARROS, Lidia Almeida et al. Manipulation, countermanipulation and persuasion in the presidential discourse: circumstantial or ever present mechanisms?. DELTA [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.1, pp. 31-63. ISSN 0102-4450.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-44502003000100002.

This study makes an analysis of persuasion, manipulation and countermanipulation processes present in a presidential speech. It aims at understanding how the discourse enunciators organise the discourse in order to obtain the enunciatee's acceptance (the Brazilian society). From a methodological point of view, we analysed space- and time-shiftings in and out, the creation of value objects and anti-subjects, and mechanisms used by the enunciator to establish a contract with the enunciatee. Opposition and government are invested with values as loss to the nation and national understanding. This study intends to offer some parameters that can be used to establish comparisons between similar discourses.

Keywords : Socio-semiotics; Political discourse; Persuasion; Manipulation.
