The Language of Newspapers explores the ways in which the press
portrays current events. From the ideological bias of the press, to
the role of headlines in newspaper articles and ways in which
newspapers relate to their audience, the book provides a comprehensive
analysis of newspaper language. The second edition has been
substantially rewritten and includes a range of new texts. Features
include: * a new introduction, taking account of recent developments
in the media * recent newspaper articles on a range of subjects, from
Jeffrey Archer's conviction to the journalist captured for suspected
spying in Afghanistan * new activities and commentaries to support
student-directed study * a 'further resources' section with details of
on-line newspapers and urls to visit.
