PRAGMATIC ANALYSIS OF JOE BIDEN’S VICTORY SPEECH 2020
This study was regulated to pinpoint the role of speech act as rumination of political leader’s ideologies. Accordingly, the intention of the study is to engross on pragmatic function of locution, illocutionary and perlocutionary acts of the speech by using Austen and Searle’s speech act theory. Joe Biden’s victory speech was analyzed on different prospect of speech acts; conversationalization and collectivization elements are enhanced in the speech to indicate global upshot of political speeches. The data was drawn from victory speech of Joe Biden, randomly chunks were extracted from the speech, systematic sequence with original data step 1 to step 20 was presented, descriptive analytical and percentage graph data analysis approach were used. Data analysis was shown in descriptive analytical form and percentage (OREFP) graphs. This (ORFP) proclaims that Joe Biden uses commisive and assertive sentences more as compare to other speech acts to show his power authority and future planning. Findings also manifest that political leaders have more broad internal intentions of excitement, attraction and attachment in their speech acts; they have some hidden ideologies and propose behind the speech. So speech acts are the derivation to acknowledge their hidden messages and intentions.
