Evaluation in Media Discourse: Analysis of a Newspaper Corpus (Corpus and Discourse)

Evaluation in Media Discourse: Analysis of a Newspaper Corpus (Corpus and Discourse) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

<div>Evaluation is the linguistic expression of speaker/writer opinion, and has only recently become the focus of linguistic analysis. This book presents the first corpus-based account of evaluation; one hundred newspaper articles collated to form a 70,000 word comparable corpus, drawn from both tabloid and broadsheet media. The book provides detailed explanations and justifications of the underlying framework of evaluation, as well as demonstrating how this is part of the larger framework of media discourse. Unlike many other linguistic analyses of media language, it makes frequent reference to the production circumstances of newspaper discourse, in particular the so-called 'news values' that shape the creation of the news. <br/><br/>Cutting-edge and insightful, <em>Evaluation in Media Discourse </em>will be of interest to academics and researchers in corpus linguistics and media discourse. </div>>

Book News Annotation:

Bednarek (English linguistics, U. of Augsburg) examines 100 newspaper articles and how they express opinion on both hard-news and tabloid stories using a framework she has developed for evaluating different types of discourse. She begins by examining the process of evaluation of newspaper discourse, delineating the idea of "news" and placing it in context, explains the concept of delineating evaluation, and proposes a new theory of evaluation. She then applies this theory to evaluating the press in terms of core and peripheral evaluative parameters and then describes empirical and theoretical issues raised by the analysis, and offers a new theory of evaluation.
