Parliamentary discourse is both a category of institutionalized multiparty confrontational political discourses and an expanding field of study. The aim of this article is to identify and outline the discourse‐shaped and discourse‐shaping mechanisms of deliberation, adversariality and polarization that underpin the political negotiation and power struggle carried out in parliament. Highlighting the linguistic and rhetorical dimensions of parliamentary discourse, the focus is on micro‐ and macrolevel investigations of parliamentary debating procedures, parliamentary question–answer patterns, and politeness principles and argumentation strategies across parliaments. The article concludes with final remarks on recent trends and future directions for this field.
