Book Information


Title: Approaches to Media Discourse
Edited By: Allan Bell
Peter Garrett

This collection brings together in one volume current leading approaches to the study of media discourse.

Its focus is on the media text (spoken, written or visual), but it also addresses issues of the production and reception of media discourse. Chapters provide a brief outline of the authors approach to media discourse and then demonstrate how the approach works in practice by close analysis of sample texts. The applicability of the frameworks is discussed, and guidelines are offered on how to use them.
