In political science, the analysis of political documents is crucial as it helps assessing a wide range of hypotheses related to the priorities set before political actors and institutions. The most widely used and most efficient of the too many methods of assessing political documents are those carried out manually, though. And yet, automatic encoding bears fundamental advantages as well. This paper sets out to compare and contrast the results of two distinct methods applied on the same corpus of texts: one method uses manual encoding content of political documents whereas the other relies on computer-based data encoding. Electoral manifestoes of Belgian main political parties between 1987 and 2007 constitute the basis of the study. Identifying and comparing the major thematics dealt with in the corpus enable us to point out a range of differences and similarities. The paper discusses both methods of encoding so as a set of conclusions is drawn and available for future analyses of political texts. [less ▲]

This paper proposes a quantitative and qualitative corpus-based analysis of the use of metaphors in political discourse from the original perspective of citizen discourse. Our data were collected from focus group discussions respectively held in the French-speaking and Dutch-speaking parts of Belgium, which tackled the citizens’ perceptions of Belgian federalism. Our findings suggest that citizens do produce metaphors when talking about complex political processes and that these metaphors reveal different political visions. This research also suggests differences in saliency of the source domains in terms of which citizens make sense of Belgian federalism. In this regard, the family domain, and more especially the metaphor BELGIAN FEDERALISM IS A LOVE RELATIONSHIP appears to function as an important conceptual reference point for the citizens’ understanding of the political relations in the Belgian context.

Que peut-on apprendre des arguments en science politique quant à leur rôle dans les discours ? S’inscrivant dans la suite des travaux sur les bifurcations et reposant sur une analyse des arguments et des discours politiques belges relatifs au climat, cet article interroge la fonctionnalité du marqueur le-pire-est-à-venir. Ce dernier, riche d’enseignement, s’apparente à la fois : 1) à un marqueur temporel particulier marquant le changement, 2) à un révélateur de figures politiques et 3) à un marqueur hybride dans l’énonciation des régimes de l’avenir.
