Select texts of speeches by French presidents for analysis 4. Compose a corpus of presidents' speeches 5. Conduct a comparative analysis The methodological basis of the work are: • the model of M.V. Kitaygorodskaya and N.N. Rozanova to describe the speech portrait on three levels: lexicon, thesaurus and pragmaticon; • the model proposed by E.V. Osetrova to describe the speech portrait of a politician that exists in two plans: the substantial component and the speech (communicative) component.
