Abstract:

The language of newspapers is usually explored by linguists because it is undoubtedly the most widely genre read in Western countries. Systemic linguistics provides useful tools for analyzing newswriting, identifying grammatical and lexical elements that are functional for achieving particular purposes in media discourse. The aim of this study is to explore to what extent situational and cultural context determines the linguistic features used in British national newswriting. More specifically, through a systemic functional approach to language, we illustrate how the most distinctive feature of news discourse, the lead, is itself structured for a particular use and how register variables impact into that language use.
