Evaluation in Media Discourse presents the first book-length corpus-based
account of evaluation, using a corpus of one hundred newspaper articles
comprising a 70,000 word comparable corpus, drawn from both tabloid and
broadsheet media. This book offers a new way forward for analysing the
expression of opinion, by proposing an innovative framework of evaluation
that can be applied to different types of discourse. It provides detailed
explanations and justifications of this framework, as well as demonstrating
how this is part of the larger framework of media discourse. Illustrated
with many authentic examples from news discourse, and integrating competing
approaches to evaluation, the book underlines the importance of context for
the functions of evaluation. It also makes frequent reference to the
production circumstances of newspaper discourse, in particular the
so-called 'news values' that shape the creation of the news. Cutting-edge
and insightful, this monograph will be of interest to academics and
researchers in the fields of (critical) discourse analysis, corpus
linguistics, and media language. Since it is written in an accessible
style, it will also be suitable for students taking courses in those areas.
