This study addressess liminality and conflict from a linguistic approach by exploring the role of language and power in the escalation of the India-Pakistan conflict in December 2008. It examines the information on the front pages of the on-line edition of four of the most popular English newspapers in India and Pakistan, in order to determine the function of the written media in the creation of the conflict's cognitive scenario and of the ideological basis to legitimize its ignition.
