“Security” in Public Language Usage: A Discourse-Linguistic Analysis

Eine diskurslinguistische Analyse

This study investigates the notion of security in contentious public discourse to derive conclusions about contemporary societal world-views. It clearly shows that by means of diverse concepts of threat, security has become established as an omnipresent word of legitimation and mobilization, carrying great potential power for implementing political objectives and measures.
