In brief: Talk and examine

Surprisingly, there can be many different causes for a chronic sore throat (tonsillitis, post-nasal drip, reflux, allergies, etc).
Your otolaryngologist will talk with you in great detail to understand your symptoms. Based on that conversation he will perform a complete head and neck examination to determine the cause of your chronic sore throat.
