Roles and Rules
of Diplomatic Language Language and Diplomacy Diplomatic Language The Role of Diplomatic Language Language of Diplomacy Language is what allows us to build on the work of others, benefiting from their knowledge and collaborating to achieve more than one person can alone. The processes of diplomacy - communicating, negotiating, reaching and formulating agreements, collecting, creating, transmitting and recording knowledge - all depend on language. 1. Use the past continuous to sound more distant
2. Use negative questions to make suggestions
3. Use modifiers to make things seem less or smaller
4. Modal verbs can be used in a similar way
5. Use positive adjectives with ‘not’ instead of negative adjectives
6. Use phrases to signal bad news for the listener 1. Te first problem to solve is finding a common tongue. This may be done between, for example, Germans and Austrians, or Portuguese and Brazilians, or representatives of different Arab countries, or British and Americans, etc.
2. The use of language in written diplomatic communication is usually explicitly determined. Generally speaking, it is based upon one of the fundamental principles of contemporary international law - the principle of sovereign equality of states. For centuries, political delegates from around the world learned to speak French — the language of diplomacy and international relations.
By the 17th century, French was known as the language of diplomacy and international relations throughout the world.

Too many, actually, for a relatively short lecture - ars longa, vita brevis!9 In conclusion, it can be said that all of the aforementioned elements serve the purpose of maximizing the effect of spoken or written text in diplomatic practice, better transmitting a message, achieving more convincing results, "talking the interlocutor in", convincing him or dissuading him The Rules of Diplomatic Language 1. Listen and be understanding
2. Avoid negative words – instead use positive words in a negative form
3. Say the magic word: Sorry
4. Use little words to soften your statements
5. Avoid ‘finger pointing’ statements with the word ‘you’ Conclusion We use verbal communication in all most all of our daily activity. The difference of diplomatic language is that it's more short, clear and polite. It could help not only diplomats but also any kind of job or occasion.
