The Language Usage in the Field of Politics



The topic of the presented bachelor thesis is The Language Usage in the Field of Poli-tics. The thesis is divided into two main chapters. The Theory of Cooperative Principle by Herbert Paul Grice and Politeness Principle by Geoffrey Leech are presented in the first part of the thesis. Their description is supported by an example from the Corpus. The Corpus of the thesis consists of ten political interviews conducted in the time frame between August and November 2015 and published in the newspaper ´Die Welt´. The topic of all ten interviews is tightly connected to the ´Immigration crisis´ in Germany. The aim of this thesis is to ascertain whether the Cooperative Principles and Politeness principles in the political interviews are observed or non-observed and whether the sys-tem of their usage has changed in the given period. The analyzed data are presented in the second part of the thesis and the results are supported by the example from the cor-pus
