Persuasion Strategies in Political Discourse: A Narrative Review of Recent Studies from Linguistics Perspective

Dunya Al Jazrawi | Zeena Al Jazrawi | Israa Mahmood


Abstract: The examination of political language is not a recent development. The classical heritage of rhetoric, in its different forms, served as a method for systematizing how political speakers recruit language to achieve persuasion and other objectives. This article offers an overview of research concerning strategies of persuasion within political discourse, with a particular emphasis on the recent research that highlights the role of linguistic elements. This study sought to uncover gaps in our knowledge and areas necessitating additional investigation. It also aimed to guide researchers in developing new research questions and hypotheses, to advance our understanding of how persuasion functions in political discourse. The study confirms the thought that persuasion is achieved through a distinct set of strategies in political discourse, and this is due to the variety of purposes of the messages involved. We hope that such a review serves as a reference for future research endeavors in the same field.
