Abstract [en]

This study has been looking for any differences in the use of first-person

pronouns between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, and it has also tried to

clarify whether Hillary Clinton uses I-words more frequently than we-words.

The data has been gathered from pre-election speeches, and frequencies,

rankings and referent categories have been analyzed. The study has found that

there are some differences in the use of first-person pronouns between Hillary

Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The singular pronouns show us how they choose to

present themselves to the voter. The plural pronouns show us which referent

categories, or ingroups, the candidates identify themselves with, and if there are

any signs of what Billig calls Banal Nationalism (1995) in their speeches.

Overall, the results show that Hillary Clinton uses I-words and we-words more

frequently than Bernie Sanders does, but opposite to what some online news

sites have suggested, this study show that her frequencies of we-words are

higher than her frequencies of I-words.
