Britain needs an iron lady : an exploration into the rhetoric and ideology of Margaret Thatcher in the months preceding her appointment to the premiership

Choi, Yuan-han, Mable, 蔡婉嫻 January 2014 (has links)
This study explores Thatcher’s use of metaphor in the communication of her ideology in the months before she was elected prime minister of Britain in May 1979. The study contends that circumstance was the making of Thatcher. Contextual analysis is performed to establish the social and political circumstances that prompted Thatcher to respond with rhetorical discourse. Three rhetorical events are discerned: the industrial situation, the passing of the motion of no confidence and the election campaign, and these are defined in terms of Bitzer’s (1968) rhetorical situation. The study then examines Thatcher’s use of metaphor in her three speeches following Charteris-Black’s (2014) critical metaphor analysis. The analysis reveals that the metaphor type most frequently used by Thatcher is conflict, which is systematically deployed across the three speeches, giving rise to the main conceptual metaphor POLITICS IS CONFLICT. This conceptual metaphor helps create two political myths – the myth of the crusading Iron Maiden and the myth of Britain as a sick patient – that are central to Thatcher’s efforts at defining social reality. By portraying herself as the intrepid leader who remains resolute in the face of adversity and Britain as a nation in decline in need of a revival, Thatcher is able to present herself as the manifest solution to Britain’s problems. The Winter of Discontent strikes prove to be the straw that broke the camel’s back; after more than three decades of consensus politics, the British people were ready for a change. In the months preceding her ultimate political destiny, Thatcher’s rhetoric of legitimation correctly captured the nation’s mood for change, enabling her to fulfill her ambitious dream of becoming Britain’s first woman prime minister. / published_or_final_version / Applied English Studies / Master / Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics

Sensory language and the divine-human relationship in the TENAK [i.e. Tanakh]

Humphrey, Francis January 1994 (has links)
The five exteroceptive senses are used extensively as metaphors for describing the divine-human relationship in the Old Testament. The thesis seeks to explore the significance of sensory language for understanding the TENAK's perspectives on the relationship between God and mortals. A phenomenology of the senses is sketched in the first chapter drawing upon the works of Merleau-Ponty, Straus, Leder, Howes and Classen. This leads the author to delineate the "rubrics" (salient features) of the Senses. / The rubrics are applied to individual texts which use sensory language to see whether they serve as a useful tool for exegesis. Tables are presented which contain lexical data on sensory language used to describe God's knowledge of humans (chapter two) and humanity's knowledge of God (chapter three). Differences in the sensory language describing the two directions of knowledge are noted and commented upon. / The thesis thus looks at the sensory language in the TENAK at both a micro-level (individual texts) and a macro-level (over-all patterns of sensory language). It is argued that the rubrics serve as a positive tool of exegesis and that the patterns detected are of significance in understanding certain basic perspectives of the TENAK'S view of the relationship between the deity and mortals.
