Speech Writing within the Framework of Public Diplomacy: Syntactical Devices as the Key to the Communicative Aim
2017
This paper is devoted to the peculiarities of diplomatic speechwriting within international organizations (UN and Council of Europe). We seek to prove the hypothesis that expressive syntax serves a basis of the communicative aim achievement in such a specific genre of public speaking. The theoretical provisions concerning public speech, diplomatic discourse and expressive syntax are described in the paper. Having considered linguistic features of the language of diplomacy and having analysed the most recent authentic scripts of diplomatic speeches, we came to the conclusion that syntax is given special attention when writing speeches for official representatives of states. The paper also considers speechwriting from the methodological perspective, analyzing the prospects of educational programs and courses development based on this subject.
