Фрейминг и рефрейминг в речевых стратегиях американских политических лидеров

Плисецкая А. Д., Филимонов К. В.

The article focuses upon the main frames created by leading American politicians during the latest presidential campaign to influence the nation. The work aims at the interconnection between mental and language structures in political discourse. The corpus analysis of concepts and frames in Obama and Romney texts according to conceptual metaphor theory of George Lakoff demonstrates that during 2012 presidential campaign Barack Obama successfully applied the basic conceptual metaphor of STATE AS THE NURTURANT PARENT in contrast with the basic metaphor of STATE AS THE STRICT FATHER used by the Republican leader Mitt Romney.
