dc.description.abstract Recently, it was observed that the French President Nicolas Sarkozy ‘uses a lot of verbs’ (Calvet & Véronis 2008), what contributes to the impression he makes of being a “turbopresident”. At the same time, the (then) Minister of State in Denmark, Anders Fogh-Rasmussen, was characterised as being arrogant because of his top-down, formal, and impersonal way of communicating. If these two styles of communication stuck out as being noticeable in their French and Danish political framework respectively, it is because they were seen against the backdrop of social norms spelling out other rules for communicating in the two societies; a French norm, for presidents at least, stipulating not to use a lot of verbs, and a Danish norm telling not to be formal and impersonal. en_US
