Abstract:

Using data from a newspaper corpus, this book offers the first empirical
study into the development of style in early mass media. The book analyses
how news discourse was shaped over time by external factors, such as the
historical context, news production, technological innovation and current
affairs, and as such both conformed to and deviated from generic
conventions. In this analysis, media style appears as a dynamic concept
which is highly sensitive to innovative approaches towards making news not
only informative but also entertaining to read. This cutting edge survey
will be of interest to academics researching corpus linguistics, media
discourse and stylistics.

"Patrick Studer is one of the world's leading experts in early English
newspapers. He has an intimate and detailed knowledge of both their content
matters and their stylistic peculiarities. In this book he provides a rich
and detailed introduction to these newspapers within their historical and
socio-cultural context and he develops a set of sophisticated
corpus-stylistic tools necessary for their analysis. There is a lot to
learn not only about newspapers in eighteenth-century England but also
about the English language at the turning point from Early Modern English
to Present-day English."
- Professor Andreas H. Jucker, Professor of English Linguistics at the
University of Zurich, Switzerland

"This is an outstanding book: theoretically and methodologically innovative
yet well-anchored in the literature; wide-ranging yet systematic and
detailed. It makes a real contribution to diverse fields. It sheds light
on how corpus-based approaches can be deployed in the study of style, how
styles interact with their social and pragmatic contexts and how change in
style comes about ... All this is written up in polished prose."
- Dr Jonathan Culpeper, University of Lancaster, UK
