Building on a ‘formulaic poetics’ framework presented to previous ICH conferences (2006 and 2007), this paper assumes that we may treat public language as a species of poetic performance. It analyses the rhetoric of several recent politicians, asking how relevant it may be to apply concepts of prosody or verse form to this process. If the language of politics is versified in some sense, how does that in turn reflect on its grammatical and ideological potentialities?
