Example text

What seems to be a representative speech act is, in fact, a sort of declarative act backed by the rhetorical strategy of simulating power. It is very instructive to have a look at how this game of power continues. As time goes by, even Schröder has gradually to take account of the fact that he has lost power, not only he himself as a person but also his party, the SPD, which did not succeed in finding coalition partners. Very interestingly, at this point, the normative view as an evaluative view from outside of the game can elucidate what happened.

However, whether they are really obeyed by the interlocutor depends on his/her decision. Schröder is not in the least worried about norms. A descriptive approach includes describing the use of norms without setting up norms (Weigand 2006). Both rounds demonstrate that we are observing a game where the parties follow quite different Executive Principles, the strategies of logic and conventions of civilised behaviour versus the strategy of rhetoric over and above logic and rationality. However, the interlocutors do not proceed single-mindedly but are players in a mixed game.
