Summary/Abstract: Nationalist discourse and nationalist parties reappeared on the political scene as a consequence of some recent events, such as the economic crisis, globalization and massive migration. The leaders of the nationalist parties try to make their voice heard not only in their respective countries but also in the European Parliament. The present paper analyzes some of the characteristic features of nationalism and of nationalist discourse. The method of investigation will be that of discourse-historical analysis, as it is appropriate to describe the main discursive strategies and the linguistic features that characterize right-wing political parties discourse. We choose to discuss some of the most vocal representatives of such parties, Marine Le Pen and Nigel Farage.
