ffcfThe post has just arrived and in it a very nice surprise, the discovery that Jacques Seguela, one-time adviser to President Mitterrand, now close confidant of President and Madame Sarkozy (indeed he intoduced them), and something of a legend in French political communications, has dedicated his latest book to little old moi.
With apologies for the missing accents here and in the French bits of the long posting which follows – the dedication to ‘Le Pouvoir dans la Peau‘ (Power in the skin) reads ‘A Alastair Campbell, mon spin doctor prefere’ (three missing accents in one word – mes excuses sinceres).
So what did I do for this honour, you are asking? Well, perhaps the fact that he asked me to read his book, and write a ‘postface’ assessment both of his writing and of the issues he covers, and the fact that I said yes, has something to do with it. He says some blushmakingly kind things in his ‘preface to the postface’, which I will have to leave to French readers of the whole thing (published by Plon). But for the largely Anglophone visitors of this blog, I thought some of you might like to read the said ‘postface’ in English (apart from the bits where I quote direct from his book). I hope all those students who write asking for help with dissertations will find something quotable in it.
Meanwhile I am off to Norway for a conference and a meeting with the Norwegian Labour Party. I’m looking forward to being in the country with the highest ‘human development index’ in the world, and which showed such a mature response to the recent massacre of Oslo and Utoya.
Here is the postface to Le Pouvoir dans la Peau
Jacques Seguela writes about political campaigns and communications not merely as an expert analyst, but as an experienced practitioner. Hence his latest book contains both insights worth heeding, but also enlivening tales of his own experience. He is observer…...

...синонимичны, но все же между ними есть некоторый различия. Лексема Lol в значении «насмехаться над кем – либо» появилась в 90-ые годы. Аббревиатура бала изобретена американскими программистами. В то время было популярно изучать языки программирования, увлекаться системами, но большинство людей, которые этим занимались, многое не понимали, но считали, что они все делают правильно. Таких людей начали называть Lol (lamer on-line). Но современем, эту аббревиатуру начали использовать на форумах, в чатах, как насмешку над кем-либо или чем-либо. В дальнейшем, первоначальное значение Lol забылось, и сейчас большинство пользователей считают, что это - громкий смех. Сами же англичане, чаще всего, вместо аббревиатуры LOL, используют другой ее вариант – lololol. В данном примере прослеживается использование аббревиатуры Lol: 1. Person 1 – Nataliya, don`t touch my casper! Person 2 – lol…are you sure he`s yours? Person 1 – lol! (http://vk.com/beginnenenglish.ru) Аббревиатура Imo обязана своей этимологией фразе «in my opinion». Данная лексическая единица демонстрирует совпадение лексического и семантического значения: по моему мнению. Входящие в ее состав компоненты являются заглавными буквами фразы in my opinion. Обычно эту аббревиатуру используют на форумах, on-line объявлениях. Также Imo широко применяется в интернет общении, чатах, блогах. С помощью данной аббревиатуры пользователи отстаивают свою точку зрения, соглашаются или отвергают мнение других. Аббревиатура возникла в связи......
