This contribution focuses on the linguistic representation of transgender people in the British press, through the analysis of a
corpus of newspaper articles collected between 2013 and 2015. Within the framework of Queer Linguistics and Corpus-based Discourse
Analysis, this study analyses the linguistic choices retraceable in the corpus under investigation, conveying a given
representation of transgender individuals as social subjects. The analysis focuses on naming strategies and the collective
representation of transgender identities.
