Blurb/Shorttext:
Politicians use their power to manipulate thoughts and the targets of such power are the citizens, the public, students, subjects and the audience who are dependent on institutional and organizational power. Since this is done through the language use, translation becomes a golden bridge which communicates the message of politicians worldwide. However, for political purposes where words are not selected haphazardly it becomes challenging since the target language authorities use it for their specified objectives and the message may not be thoroughly conveyed as it is expressed by the political speaker. Regarding this, a research was conducted in which Persian translations of the speeches by the US politicians namely president Obama and Secretary Kerry were investigated. Comparing the data, discourse analysis was applied, demonstrating in what ways the target language authorities have violated the original message of the source language authorities. This book can be of benefit to linguists, discourse analysts, researchers, translators, teachers, and students. This research has implications within the translational studies and English language teaching.
