The research we have tried to carry out shows that the speeches of American and British politicians are characterized by a great number of devices which make the speech sound more persuasive and expressive. The research shows that mostly the following stylistic devices are used in political speeches, parallel constructions, repetition, enumeration, antithesis, gradation, polysyndeton, asyndeton, inversion, and rhetorical question.
Parallel construction is the repetition of the same syntactical structure in two or more succeeding sentences. Parallelism in political speech tends to convey a certain definite rhythm to the narration and due to its sameness it created a certain background to emphasize the necessary word or phrase. This word or phrase is usually repeated in the parallel constructions.
