Abstract: Éste es un estudio de los discursos de campaña de dos políticos japoneses durante las elecciones del House of Councilors (Cámara Baja) en el verano de 2010. Aunque el lenguaje “de la información” (“report-talk”) utilizado en asuntos de estado aún lo utilizan políticos experimentados, un nuevo estilo de “rapport-talk” (lenguaje “de la afinidad”) ha surgido en la escena política japonesa. Este estilo que tiene como finalidad enfatizar las emociones y la empatía ha sido aceptado con entusiasmo por el ciudadano japonés. Esto sugiere que el discurso político japonés está en un periodo de transición. This is a study of campaign speeches between two Japanese politicians during the House of Councilors (i.e., Lower House) election in the summer of 2010. Although the traditional “report-talk” on policies and issues is still embraced by experienced politicians, a new style of “rapport-talk” has emerged in the Japanese political scene. This style of emphasizing emotion and empathy has been accepted with enthusiasm by Japanese people. This suggests that the Japanese political discourse system is in a transitional period.
