<< Re-Shaping Eastern Communities Discourse Patterns through an EU Context

Linguistic patterns as means of persuasion

Gina Necula (“Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati)



Engendering the discourse presupposes a collage of already made linguistic structures likely to be decoded by speakers under certain conditions such as: sharing the same code, assigning the same meaning to the structure in case, etc. Linguistic patterns are condensed formulae communicating universal wisdom whose occurrence in the discourse confers argumentative authority. Originating in former or present lingua franca and being widely recognized, such structures have inroaded into other languages preserving the same strategic use in view of reaching persuasive goals.
