Call for Papers: Linguistics and Media Discourse

Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses (RAEI) is an international well-known
Journal on English Studies published annually since 1988 by the University of
Alicante (Spain). The abstracts of all the articles published so far can be
accessed at the following Internet address:


RAEI is currently is preparing a Special Issue on linguistic analyses of media
discourse(s). We would like to invite any contributors who are doing research on
this field to participate in this volume which will appear in July 2006. Papers
dealing with any contribution that linguistics can make to the analysis of media
discourses will be welcome, either theoretical of practical applications.

Any area of linguistics is welcome (systemic linguistics, semantics, general
pragmatics, relevance theory, discourse analysis, critical discourse analysis,
conversation analysis, politeness theory, speech act theory, interactional
sociolinguistics, nonverbal communication, etc.) and they can be applied to a
wide range of media discourses (the press, TV discourse, film discourse,
Internet discourse, advertising, cartoons, comics, radio discourse, etc.).
Preferrably, contribution should deal with media discourses in English, but
applications to other languages will also be welcome, provided that the articles
are written in English.

We think that this area of linguistic research is underdeveloped and that a
special volume like this one will no doubt contribute to a better understanding
of how it can be applied to these media discourses.

Contributions, which should not be longer than 12,000 words, should be submitted
before February 28th 2006, complying with the general RAEI guidelines for the
submission of manuscripts which are accessible at the following Internet address:


Manuscripts (2 hard copies) should be sent to the following address:
