Exiting with Dignified Rhapsody: A Lexical Study of U.S. Presidential Concession Speeches

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

U.S. presidential concession speeches are not legally mandated; they are part of a political culture that stresses system continuity after hard-fought and divisive electoral battles. This study uniquely used Diction 5.0, a computer-based content analysis software, to analyze presidential concession speeches from 1952 to 2008. Findings show that while concession speeches structurally appear the same, they qualitatively vary. Unlike Democrats, Republican Party contenders show more reluctance to concede in their concession speeches.
