Since its onset, the Greek crisis has given rise to an abundance of relevant text and talk. This volume offers an insider’s view of the discursive manifestations of the crisis, focusing on discourses in the Greek language and by Greek social actors. The contributions investigate the diverse ways in which the crisis has been communicated to the public by domestic policymakers or debated by elite, non-elite and resistant participants. Crisis discourses are also examined in the light of the rise of neo-nationalism and the extreme Right in both Greece and Cyprus. All contributions seek to meaningfully combine critical discourse and corpus linguistics perspectives for a better understanding of the Greek crisis as a socio-economic episode and as a discourse construct. Discourse-driven quantification and corpus-driven quantification complement each other in the critical examination of textual data as diverse as official government communications, party leader speeches, newspaper articles, public assembly resolutions, song lyrics, social media commentary and terrorist proclamations.

Table of Contents
“This volume is, to the best of my knowledge, the first book on Greek crisis discourse from a clearly linguistic perspective. [...] The volume is highly recommended to scholars interested in (critical) discourse and/or CL approaches to political communication. [...]. The volume undoubtedly contributes to new understandings of the Greek debt crisis and hopefully to a new reality where insiders’ voices and views will be louder and more powerful. As such, it is an inspiration for further (socio)linguistic research on how the discourses circulating in crisis-ridden states are constructed and debated.”
