Abstract:

In discourse, verbal messages are framed: speakers offer cues on the
basis of which hearers are able to anchor the verbal message to the
context. Furthermore, speakers cannot contribute to the discourse
without at the same time showing their view on the subject matter of
the discourse: the content of a discourse is necessarily 'displayed'
from a certain perspective. Both the framing and perspectivising of
verbal messages are not static, but subject to possible changes during
the development of the discourse. Both concepts function at the
intersection of a psychological-cognitive and a social-functional
approach to discourse. In this volume, eight contributions are brought
together which offer theoretical tools for describing and explaining
framing and perspectivising devices in the production and
comprehension of discourse, and apply them to the analysis of several
types of discourse such as political satire, letters-to-the-editor,
everyday narrations and newspaper reports.
