Statsministeriet modtager hvert år mange henvendelser vedrørende statsministerens nytårstaler. Derfor kan du på Statsministeriets hjemmeside læse lidt om historien bag nytårstalerne, ligesom du kan høre og se de fleste gamle nytårstaler. I Danmark har der udviklet sig den tradition, at statsministeren i forbindelse med nytåret holder en nytårstale, som bliver transmitteret i radio og tv.

Det var statsminister Thorvald Stauning, der holdt den allerførste nytårstale i 1940. Det var dog først fra 1946, at det blev en fast opgave for statsministeren at holde nytårstale. Frem til 1959 blev talerne udelukkende transmitteret i radioen. Frem til i dag har statsministeren holdt nytårstaler med undtagelse af årene 1968, 1972, 1975 og 1984. På linket nedenfor er de nytårstaler, som Statsministeriet har kunnet rekvirere, gjort tilgængelige i det format, som de oprindeligt blev optaget i. Nytårstaler>> Under 'Taler' er alle nytårstaler siden 1998 desuden gjort skriftligt tilgængelige. Danske taler. Temaer Retorik vedrører offentlige taler og sprog der har indflydelse på samfundet eller betydning i sociale sammenhænge. I Danmark markeres flere nationale eller politiske mærkedage med offentlige taler. Hvad er retorik? Retorik har traditionelt været forbundet med at holde tale i et offentligt forum, men opfattes i dag bredere, som en samtale mellem medlemmer af et samfund.

Retorik skaber således forståelse for hvem vi er og hvordan vi opfatter vores fællesskab. Den almindeligste definition af retorik har siden antikken været at retorik er kunsten at anvende sproget til at kommunikere effektivt og overbevisende. Gennem historien har retorik været brugt som betegnelse for forskelligartede opfattelser af hvordan sproglige og andre udtryksformer anvendes mest hensigtsmæssigt i givne situationer, og for teorier om hvordan man bedst behersker og reflekterer over retorik.

Retorik har derfor både en praktisk og en teoretisk side. Moderne teorier om talekunst Danske talegenrer Folketinget. Social Justice and Human Rights Speeches.

Gifts of Speech: Women's Speeches from Around the World. Voices of Democracy. Medieval Sourcebook: Urban II: Speech at Council of Clermont, 1095, according to Fulcherof Chartres. Back to Medieval Source Book | ORB Main Page | Links to Other Medieval Sites | [adapted from Thatcher] In 1094 or 1095, Alexios I Komnenos, the Byzantine emperor, sent to the pope, Urban II, and asked for aid from the west against the Seljuq Turks, who taken nearly all of Asia Minor from him.

At the council of Clermont Urban addressed a great crowd and urged all to go to the aid of the Greeks and to recover Palestine from the rule of the Muslims. The acts of the council have not been preserved, but we have four accounts of the speech of Urban which were written by men who were present and heard him. Here is the one by the chronicler Fulcher of Chartres.

Not how the traditions of the peace and truce of God - aimed at bringing about peace in Christendom - ties in directly with the call for a Crusade. Does this amount to the export of violence?

It is a great honour for me to speak to you tonight.

Three weeks ago exactly I was in Moscow, walking through the town house where Churchill met Stalin in October 1944; a magnificent building. Well, your tour of Churchill’s England, and my little tour of Churchill’s world tonight, have no security classification. Churchill lived such a long life that he had many London residences: it would be nice to feel that, as a result of interest such as yours, blue plaques will one day be put on all of them. Read more.
