English news discourse from newsbooks to new media
This chapter discusses the long diachrony of English news discourse from seventeenth-century newsbooks to the twentieth century and the dawn of multimedia. We shall place news discourse in its context of sociocultural developments considering what might be diachronically constant and what prone to change. The data available for studies on news discourse as well as the potential for interdisciplinary study methods at various interfaces will be highlighted between sociolinguistics, journalism, semiotics, literary theory, critical discourse analysis, pragmatics and sociology.
Keywords: English news discourse, sociohistorical developments, diachrony, corpus analysis, metatextual analysis, multimodality, interdisciplinarity
