Abstract [en]

The topic of this study is American political rhetoric. The aim is to see if and how President of the United States of America, George W. Bush uses different semantic devices, such as metaphors and anaphors, as well as religious and historical symbols in his speeches and to see if those devices and symbols follow the tradition of American political rhetoric. In order to do this, eight speeches made by the President have been selected for analysis. The speeches all concern the war on Iraq and worldwide terrorism and also the issue of peace in the Middle East. The addresses have been analyzed and metaphors, anaphors and religious and historical symbols have been found. From the results of this study, the conclusion can be drawn that the President deliberately uses devices and symbols that follow the line of traditional American political rhetoric.
