Impoliteness in Media Discourse Hardback

Edited by Anna Baczkowska

The book presents the issue of impoliteness in media discourse found in television debates, films and computer-mediated communication.

The phenomenon is viewed from different theoretical perspectives, namely prosody studies, corpus linguistics, media studies and audiovisual translation, neo-Gricean approaches, reception-oriented investigations and context-bound interpretations.

Authors from ten different countries - Sweden, USA, Norway, New Zealand, Mexico, Georgia, France, Poland, India, and UAE - analyse data from nine languages - English, Swedish, Georgian, Polish, Arabic, Persian, French, Croatian and Montenegrin.
