The relevance of this study is justified by the novelty of the material under consideration, as well as the relatively low level of study of this issue. The purpose of the study was to identify the features of language means of influence on the target audience. The main objective of the study was to examine the political texts of the ruling parties of Great Britain and the Republic of Cameroon, and to study the features of the language tools used by both parties. The study uses descriptive methods, as well as the method of component and contextual analysis. The article is devoted to the study of political texts’ peculiarities: “The Conservative and Unionist Party Manifesto 2019” of Britain and “Circular on to the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement electoral campaign for elections of February 9, 2020” of Cameroon. The abovementioned documents were selected for the reason that they are actual at the time of the study. The language tools represented in these texts are analyzed. The meaning of the term "political text" is considered, and several variants of meanings proposed by researchers are presented. The mentioned documents were chosen as a subject for research because they are similar in content, target audience, and due to similar reasons for publication. Similar extracts were chosen from the entire volume of documents submitted, introduction and appeal to the electorate or party members. We noted the features specific to each of the selected documents and we analyze the possible meanings of certain document words. The study used dictionaries of the English language, as well as explanatory dictionaries of the English language. Based on the data presented in the dictionaries of Cambridge and Oxford Universities, language features were identified, as well as specific ways of influencing the target audience.
