Candidates will attack more and acclaim less on future plans than on general objectives.
political communication culture
Both candidates used values more for acclamation than for attacks, during both debates. The difference could be explained when we take into account the qualitative content of the two discursive functions defense and attackand the role of political culture in the mechanism of Television debate.
Any problem, any crisis can be solved by talking. Attacks are discursive interventions targeting weaknesses and limitations of the opponent Benoit, Such an approach ensures understanding of the symbolic topology, the becju position of the candidates in the political field of confrontation.
In the fourth section we present the results of the research, followed by some discussion in the fifth section. In the functional theory of political discourse, candidates are positioned on the disccurs scale by three discursive functions: The three types of discursive interventions may be slightly operationalized and defined in multiple languages and cultures.
Although the mediatic discourse exploits first of all the spectacular dimension of the debate, one should not neglect the generative dimension of this discursive genre. The chi-square test calculated for the three types of discursive functions shows significant differences in the way the two candidates used those functions in the two debates: The two authors suggest a strategic approach of discursive exchanges during the televised debate.
Being in the world means being outside.
The first hypothesis is partially confirmed we have more attacks than defense, acclamations occupying intermediate position. The functional analysis of political discourse can be regarded as an instrument that helps us diagnose the discursive behavior of social actors during televised debates, the civilisation of dialogue in the local political life. The particular mode in which social players use the three discursive functions in the debate can be used by voters to decide which of the candidates is preferred.
Obviously, political messages and declarations aim to win the election. Vote is a comparative act; Candidates should distinguish themselves from other opponents; Political campaign messages allow candidates to distinguish themselves from others to assert their identity.

We noticed that both candidates had used general objectives to acclaim more than to attack, with only one exception — Victor Ponta, during first debate, who used general objectives to camekia 5 timesin comparison with acclamation one time. During the first debate, opposition candidate attacked mostly on past actions, on leadership skills and on the personal character of the candidate who was in power. Registration units were considered assertions, claims, statements, and arguments of candidates themesand each theme was coded for one out of the three discursive functions: We depart from the five axioms formulated by Benoit Table 5 and Table 6 present results from the testing of the third hypothesis.
Dialogue needs a certain type of situation to be born lawfully and to be carried out coherently. How does our life start?
As research limitation, we mention here constraints related to: Therefore we confirmed the third hypothesis. His presence there means serving the common good.
The data show that the candidate who was already in power Victor Ponta prime-minister at that time used the defense strategy more often than the opposition candidate Klaus Iohannis, in both debates: Ipoteze si ipostaze Discourse Analysis. The third section contains research methodology. And then you have to do something. This article is based on the premise that televised political debates are conflictual, competitive verbal interactions. Dialogue is not possible in whatever conditions, and we, in Romania, today, should know it too well.
Only in the case of the opposition candidate, Klaus Iohannis, during the second debate, the relationship between the three discursive functions is consistent with the first hypothesis: The data presented in the Table 1 show that during the first debate, opposition candidate Klaus Iohannis attacked more Still, our medatic shows similarities with the results obtained in other countries, and highlights on potential differences, which challenge the functional theory assumptions.
In the first televised debate, the frequencies for each type of discursive function were: In the metabolism of debate we can see discursive behaviour models that generalise in the verbal interactions in the public space.
The televised debates remain essential forms of communication for the functioning of democracy Coleman, We depart from Benoit hypothesis regarding functions of the discourse in political campaigns: The first axiom implies a certain competence of the citizens, who have to decide on preference of a particular candidate in camekia comparative way. In this way, we might say, that dialogue precedes language and gives birth to it. Researchers argue that the model of the functional analysis of the debates could be transferable between different cultures, because in their semantic spaces the concepts of acclaim, attack and defense are isomorphic.
One cannot have a dialogue with a wall; one cannot have a dialogue with something closed. The two discrs constituted the corpus for our analysis.
Table 2 shows how the situation has changed during the second debate, when Victor Ponta attacked more Second, defensive enunciations may create the impression that a candidate ai reactive, rather than proactive. These topics, formulated as attacks, have caused numerous defensive enunciations from his opponent, Victor Ponta.

The three neciu functions are mutually stimulated and conditioned Benoit and Wells, Victor Ponta used offensive enunciations much more on the Policies theme than on the Character theme. Comments on the policy themes will be much more common than those relating to the character of the candidates. These data show that Victor Ponta looked for an improvement in his discursive strategy from the first to the second debate.
