Book Information


Title: Introducing the Language of the News
Subtitle: A Student's Guide
Written By: M. Grazia Busa

Introducing the Language of the News is a comprehensive introduction to the language of news reporting. Assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, the book provides an accessible analysis of the processes that produce news language, and discusses how different linguistic choices promote different interpretations of news texts. Key features include; comprehensive coverage of both print and online news (including news design and layout, story structure, the role of headlines and leads, style, grammar and vocabulary), a range of contemporary examples in the international press, chapter summaries, activities, sample analyses and commentaries, enabling students to undertake their own analyses of news texts and a companion website with extra activities, further readings and web links.

Written by an experienced researcher and teacher, this book is essential reading for students studying English language and linguistics, media and communication studies, and journalism.
