Economic Crises: A Discourse-Historical Analysis

Eine linguistische Diskursgeschichte

Drawing upon public political discourse on economic crises, this study applies the principles of discursive linguistics to the history of argumentation to study how linguistics argumentation constructs "crises" as social facts. The author examines various questions, including how "crisis constructions" become incorporated in the legitimization of political action and how certain viewpoints become manifest.
