Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Photojournalism: A Social Semiotic Approach
Written By: Helen Caple

Photojournalism provides an analysis of press photography from a social semiotic perspective. It explores the role of photography in the news and how meanings are made in news photographs. It also investigates the meanings that are made at the intersection of words and images in the news story context. This is becoming increasingly important for multimodal news reporting in the twenty-first century.

The book brings together the author's experiences as a professional photographer, lecturer and researcher to provide readers with a comprehensive tool kit for analyzing images and text-image relations. It explores a wide range of case studies and will appeal to scholars in Social Semiotics, Linguistics, Communications Studies, Critical Discourse Analysis and Media/Journalism Studies.
