Communicating conflict: multilingual case studies of the news media
Continuum, May 28, 2008 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 293 pages
Communicating Conflict brings together a collection of multilingual case studies drawn from the international media. The contributors use methodologies drawn from Critical Discourse Analysis and Systemic Functional Linguistics to explore how these texts overtly or covertly advance particular value positions and world views. They pay particular attention to how the reader is positioned with respect to the events being described, and, using appraisal theory, the various voices which are referenced by the text. This book is a timely examination of the reporting of conflict around the world. It will be of interest to researchers in sociolinguistics, discourse analysis and media studies.
