Book Information

   

Title: The Language of Newspapers
Subtitle: Socio-Historical Perspectives
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/search/default.aspx?Text=Language%20of%20Newspapers
Series Title: Advances in Sociolinguistics
Description:

This book charts the connections between the language of journalism in
England and its social impact on audiences and social and political debates
from the first emergence of periodical publications in the seventeeth century
to the present day. It extends work done on the language of the media to
include an historical perspective, adding to wider contemporary debates about
the social impact of the media.

It draws upon the field of historical pragmatics, while retaining a concentration
on the development of a particular form of media language, the newspaper,
and its role in refracting and contributing to social developments. Dialogue is
created between sociolinguistics and journalism studies. It is ideally suited to
advanced students in these areas and in linguistics and media studies in
general.

"Conboy provides a fresh and lively account of the emergence of early
English newspapers and their development through the centuries. In this
important new book, he unravels the fascinating story of how newspapers
helped to shape and were shaped by social, political and historical events."
-Andreas H. Jucker, Professor of English linguistics, University of Zurich,
Switzerland
