    Abstract: Based on three local English newspapers between December 1999 and July 2002, this paper attempts to examine how Taiwanese politicians manipulate their language in a bid to covertly pretend that their utterance does cooperatively reply to the question posed, thereby fulfilling its conversational demand, yet their utterance is indeed evasive. The findings are that politicians pervasively tend to exploit four main mitigating devices: sloganing, use of politicizing terms, smearing and labeling. These strategies enable politicians to disclaim responsibility and distance themselves from the predicament. Aimed at this phenomenon, this study will hopefully not only shed light on our better understanding of political discourse, but also help us detect the truth of political events behind the rhetorical strategies.
