Overview

This book attempts an explication into an understanding of political language in Kenya. It specifically focuses on the problems of cohesion, coherence and pragmatic meaning in selected texts of Swahili political speeches. To handle these disparate problems of Swahili discourse, an eclectic approach is employed comprising of Implicature approach by Grice (1975), cohesion approach by Halliday & Hasan (1976) and Topic Framework approach by Brown & Yule (1983). The book amounts from data in a field based research. It uses filmed data recorded by audio-visual equipment and finally transcribed and analyzed focusing on specific aims.
