  • TITLE: A Pragmatic Study of Strategic Maneuvering in Selected Political Interviews

    AUTHORS: Abbas Deygan Darweesh Al-Duleimi, Waleed Ridha Hammoodi

    KEYWORDS: Pragmatics, Strategic Maneuvering, Pragmatic Structure

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Modern Linguistics, Vol.5 No.1, February 16, 2015

    ABSTRACT: This study deals with strategic maneuvering in selected political interviews from the pragmatic point of view represented by two interviews with: Cheney and Obama. The study attempts to investigate strategic maneuvering strategies and stages. To achieve such aims, a model is developed for the analysis of strategic maneuvering in the selected political interviews. The findings of the analysis verify the hypotheses represented by the process of strategic maneuvering stages and strategies in the two selected political interviews. Precisely, this study attempts to shed light on the most problematic areas in political maneuvering. These fuzzy areas must be delineated and made clear because they impinge upon understanding how political speeches appeal themselves to the readers and how in turn these readers could find out the impetus behind these maneuvering.
