Abstract

In  this paper,  we first of all clarify what is meant by manipulation from the point of view       of linguistic theory, both in the Russian and in the Western  traditions. Then we present  some linguistic mechanisms that  can  convey  manipulation,  paying  a  particular  attention  to presupposition. Later we consider different presuppositional typologies and definitions, highlighting the function of the presupposition triggers. Finally, two Russian discourse markers, ведь and же, are analyzed through the National Russian Language Corpus (NKRJa), and a clear distinction between them is drawn, concerning their ability to convey the hidden manipulation.
