Abstract:

This cutting-edge collection of articles provides the first organised reflection
on the language of films and television series across British, American and
Italian cultures. The volume suggests new directions for research and
applications, and offers a variety of methodologies and perspectives on the
complexities of "telecinematic" discourse - a hitherto virtually unexplored
area of investigation in linguistics.

The papers share a common vision of the big and small screen: the belief
that the discourses of film and television offer a re-presentation of our
world. As such, telecinematic texts reorganise and recreate language
(together with time and space) in their own way and with respect to specific
socio-cultural conventions and media logic. The volume provides a
multifaceted, yet coherent insight into the diegetic - as it revolves
around narrative - as opposed to mimetic - as referring to other non-
narrative and non-fictional genres - discourses of fictional media. The
collection will be of interest to researchers, tutors and students in pragmatics,
stylistics, discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, communication studies and
related fields.
