Abstract

The study carries out a corpus linguistic analysis of a number of American presidential debates. The selected data is analyzed using tools of functional grammar by means of computerized software. Results are, then, interpreted for the purpose of deciding how presidential candidates use language to win the presidency from their opponents. Such accomplishment is conditioned by how much they succeed in persuading their audience that, as presidents, they are capable of handling the audience issues and meeting their demands. The study reaches a conclusion that the corpus linguistic tools are essential in identifying the implications of selecting the lexico-grammatical tools that are in turn crucial in enabling speakers to perform a number of functions such as constructing social relations, exercising power or maintaining solidarity with the listeners.
