News Discourse, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Now reissued and retypeset, this canonical book explores the role of language and images in newspaper, radio, online and television news.

The authors introduce useful frameworks for analysing language, image and the interaction between the two, and illustrate these with authentic news stories from around the English-speaking world, ranging from the Oktoberfest to environmental disasters to the killing of Osama bin Laden.

This analysis persuasively illustrates how events are retold in the news and made `newsworthy' through both language and image.

This clearly written and accessible introduction to news discourse is essential reading for students, lecturers and researchers in linguistics, media and journalism studies and semiotics.
