Abstract:

This book explores the use of language and other discourse-related segments
of the print and electronic media in Africa, South America, North America
and Asia. The fifteen chapters of the book examine discursive strategies in
media interviews, ideology and power relations in headlines, values and
truth in international news, explicatures and implicatures in editorials,
representation of people in the news, the pragmatics of newspaper
headlines, the religion contents of newspapers, the portrayal of women in
news reports, phonological features of newscasts, the use of humour in
media discourse, speech acting in cigarette advertising, media arts and
techniques of writing advanced and specialized news and the representation
of public opinions in newspaper reports. The internationality of the scope
of the book and the impressive depth of the treatment of the topics easily
recommend it to general readers and scholars all over the world who are
interested in media discourse.
