This paper gives a linguistic overview of the public discourse of Alija Izetbegovic on the example of his (oral) speech entitled Return to Head of the Party. Since public discourse of Alija Izetbegovic has had an important place in the overall Bosnian and Herzegovinian public discourse, and moreover it has been successful in shaping a worldwide public discourse in politics, the paper will explore some important features of Izetbegović's public discourse in a particular social context. Thus, special attention in this paper will be given to the following questions: which linguistic and nonlinguistic discourse elements are the parts of Izetbegović's public discourse and what is their contextual function. Interestingly enough, his speeches have not yet been seriously and scientifically analyzed, even though many collected (Izetbegović's) speeches and interviews have already been published. The aim of the author of this paper is not to find out the reasons why Izetbegović's speeches have not been analyzed linguistically, sociologically, psychologically, or from some other point of view, but to bring attention to the characteristics of one discourse that significantly shaped an image of identity of Bosnia and Herzegovina in a given time as well as to give prominence to non-linguistic elements that made an impact on his linguistic form.
