Abstract


This study examines the speech styles used in the inaugural speeches of two of American presidents: George W. Bush 2001, and Bark Obama 2009. By employing Halliday's transitivity framework, guided by Systemic Functional Grammar (SFG), this study attempts to reveal the ideologies presented in discourse patterns used by the two presidents. Using the transitivity model, aided by statistical analysis, the research shows that certain linguistic structures of the speech encode the particular worldview or ideological stance of a speaker.
