Abstract

In the iconic history of Bangladesh there are a number of dates which are etched, 7th March, 1971, is one of them. On this day the great national leader of Bengali era Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman delivered a highly spiritual speech, an immortal political poem which was about the Bengali Nation’s struggle for independence. The way he presented and the style of language of this speech is enriched with the use of aestheticism, dialect, gesture, syntax and semantics which make this speech more melodious and heart touching. Therefore, this speech of retelling the latent howling and urge of Bengali nation can be entitled as ‘Political poetry’ and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman can be called as ‘Poet of Politics’. As the Speech of Bangabandhu is presented from political aspect, it is needed to be explained from Sociolinguistic point of view with other major linguistic analysis. The study has been conducted to find the linguistic phenomena of this historical speech.
