Abstract:

This study focuses on how language used in discussion about the space domain reveals the interests of state actors. Corpora from the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs MOFA, The Communist Party of China COC News, and speeches by Xi Jinping were analyzed using a codebook designed to generate quantitative measures of the extent to which emotive and cultural themes, political themes, entities and rhetorical devices are employed. These measures provide a quantitative analysis of Chinese worldview and goals and how the Chinese generally view space.
