Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

Evaluation is the linguistic expression of speaker/writer opinion, and has
only recently become the focus of linguistic analysis. This book presents
the first corpus-based account of evaluation; one hundred newspaper
articles collated to form a 70,000 word comparable corpus, drawn from both
tabloid and broadsheet media.

The book provides detailed explanations and justifications of the
underlying framework of evaluation, as well as demonstrating how this is
part of the larger framework of media discourse. Unlike many other
linguistic analyses of media language, it 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, Evaluation in Media Discourse will be of
interest to academics and researchers in corpus linguistics and media
discourse.
