Final comparison

Based on the detailed comparison of speech in pairs, it can be concluded that while two speeches may share similarities in terms of political, historical and social circumstances, they may or may not be similar in terms of syntax, vocabulary or other linguistic features. Also, rather than similarities, differences are more likely. Out of five pairs of speeches, circumstances of the crises are shared by three of them. Only one pair, however, Truman versus Nixon, confirmed also discourse similarities. The other two pairs, Obama versus Bush and Wilson versus Roosevelt, showed rather vast differences in several categories. As “presidential war message may serve multiple functions,” communicating a war message, placing blame or promoting a new doctrine, there can be many discourse analysis results. (Benjamin, p. 81)
