Political language represents one of the complex specialized languages considering the complexity of socio-political texts. Some scholars distinguish between “the language of politics” and “political language”, stating that the former contains the terminology and rhetoric associated with political activities employed by politicians while playing their roles in politics; it is characterized by an extreme flexibility and dynamizm. As for the "political language", it is open to all members of the linguistic community. It is related to the specific use of a common language as a means of persuasion and control. In other words, it is the language used for the purpose of manipulation. We think that these two terms are somehow interconnected. Both of them serve the purpose of manipulation. Therefore, they can be considered as partial synonyms. The article aims to discuss the French and Georgian political vocabulary in order to identify the specific characteristics of each and also to define the status of French lexical units for the purpose of their correct interpretation and expression in the Georgian language.
