Aim. Linguostatistic analysis of speeches at the Davos Economic Forum, to define formal characteristics of speeches as well as pragmatic extralinguistic goals of the speakers. Methodology. The authors analyzed selected texts (transcripts) at the level of media text as a unit of economic forums discourse. The study is carried out by means of SEO-analysis with subsequent interpretation of the results of linguistic-statistical processing of texts. Results. Mechanisms of influence and ways of conveying information to the world community are defined. It is noted that the SEO-analysis of speeches does not allow to fully reveal the semantic essence and intentions of the speaker. Research implications. The article contains some proposals to expand the study of media files of economic forums using two types of discourse analysis – formal and functional, which will allow a more full and comprehensive study of this type of discourse.

Key words

Davos, economic forum, linguistic characteristics, linguistic statistics, discourse, semantic analysis
