The Perception of America in Donald Trump’s Inaugural Address as Examined Through Corpus-Assisted Discourse Analysis

The purpose of this paper is to conduct a corpus-assisted discourse analysis with the goal of identifying and exploring the portrayal of America in Donald Trump’s inaugural address. This objective will be achieved through a series of steps. Initially, the concept of discourse will be defined, drawing upon a succinct review of selected literature on the subject. Next, the idea of discourse analysis will be introduced via an exploration of definitions provided by various scholars, followed by a brief presentation of Corpus-Assisted Discourse Studies, which will subsequently form the foundation for a deeper analysis of the text. After establishing the theoretical background, we will delve into an analysis of the results derived from the corpus-assisted examination of the speech. The primary discoveries from this investigation will be highlighted in the concluding summary.
