EU Discourse on Turkey

Gorjan Dimitrov

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The starting point for the project is the question of Turkey’s accession as a candidate for EU membership, which has caused a great stir in international media. Using critical discourse analysis as it is described by Norman Fairclough in Language and Power (1989), three texts are analysed in detail, with specific focus on the three values that Fairclough identifies as experiential, relational and expressive, both in terms of vocabulary choices and grammatical constructions.
