The democratization of Spain after decades of authoritarian rule involved a profound re-organization of the political discourse and its vocabulary. The study deals with the evolution and further development the post-francoist political language, especially focussing on the interplay of two main tendencies: The impact of long-ranging discursive traditions, on the one hand, and a strong dynamics towards the emergence of a new consensual and standarized linguistic koine, on the other. The monograph studies carefully the ideological, doctrinal and theoretical vocabulary, the different facets of the socio-economic terminology as well as the contribution of metaphorical procedures to the constitution of coherent political discourse and the renewal of its vocabulary.
