Les styles discursifs des premiers ministres québécois de Jean Lesage à Jean Charest

Abstract : The style of politician speeches reveals their personalities and their communication strategies. In order to analyse the style of Quebec prime ministers, from 1960 to 2005, a corpus of 789 speeches have been built up and a quantitative stylistic analysis has been applied to it. The main indicators used are the grammatical categories, especially the verbs and pronouns, the length and the structure of sentences. This statistical comparison shows some important differences between the styles of the prime ministers and between the communication strategies they have followed.
