Summary Summary: "Analysing Newspapers draws on critical discourse analysis to explore the political and ideological implications of language use in the press. Through a balanced and thorough discussion, the text creates a practical framework that can be applied to all forms of journalistic practice and research. Fundamental linguistic concepts and tools, including sentence construction, presupposition, lexical analysis and rhetoric are discussed in a straightforward and succinct manner, using newspaper extracts to illustrate key points."--BOOK JACKET
