Title: Communicating Conflict
Subtitle: Multilingual Case Studies of the News Media
Edited By: Elizabeth Thomson
Peter R. R. White

‘Communicating Conflict’ brings together a collection of multilingual case
studies drawn from the international media. The contributors use
methodologies drawn from Critical Discourse Analysis and Systemic
Functional Linguistics to explore how these texts overtly or covertly
advance particular value positions and world views. They pay particular
attention to how the reader is positioned with respect to the events being
described, and, using appraisal theory, the various voices which are
referenced by the text. This book is a timely examination of the reporting
of conflict around the world. It will be of interest to researchers in
sociolinguistics, discourse analysis and media studies.
