Vocabulary and the Discourse on the 1967 Territories

Show Summary Details


The chapter examines the link between prolonged occupation and the language that has evolved in the State of Israel as used in the public discourse. It demonstrates the close relations between the two and how the use of language has undergone various stages from that of the religious belief discourse to a discourse of national rights, from which arose the security discourse whose origin lies in the language of conciliation and peace, and from there to the language of separation and disengagement.
