  • Introduction

    This special issue on International Journal of Language and Linguistics (IJLL) is to publish and collect both experimental and theoretical contributions of original and high quality research papers and encourage researchers to investigate topics in the fields of Critical discourse Analysis (CDA), Grammatical Metaphor (GM) initiated by Halliday (1985) and Rhetorical tropes in Political and advertisement discourses. The investigation can employ all the above frameworks collectively and individually in a manuscript.

    Grammatical Metaphor under metafunctions of language in Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) is twofold: ideational and interpersonal. Ideational GM incorporates nominalization and process types and Interpersonal GM includes modal metaphor and mood metaphor. In CDA as interdisciplinary analytical perspective seeks to inquire into the link between power and discourse, and particularly to examine the way in which authority, dominance and social inequality are constructed, sustained, reproduced and resisted in the discourse of written texts and spoken words. Rhetoric is also considered as a power for exciting and moving the audience in any way the speaker wants. In all its forms, rhetoric is of crucial importance in politics. It can be a very powerful tool to shape public feeling and opinions about political issues.

    The Special Issue preserves prompt publication of manuscripts that meet the broad-spectrum criteria of scientific excellence. Areas of interest include Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), Grammatical Metaphor (GM) and Rhetoric in Political and Advertisement discourses, but are not limited to these discourses and covers various discourses such as: The discourse of medicine, education, law, business, and any other specialized discourses employing the above frameworks. Review of manuscripts will be completed within one week after submission. Accepted manuscripts will be published as soon as authors pay the article processing fee.
