This book departs from the premise that political discourse is intrinsically connected with media discourse, as shaped by its cultural and transcultural characteristics. It presents a collection of papers which examine political discourse in the media from a cross-culturally comparative perspective in Arab, Dutch, British, Finnish, Flemish, French, German, Israeli, Swedish, US-American and international contexts. By using different theoretical frameworks, such as conversation analysis, discourse analysis, pragmatics and systemic functional linguistics, the papers reflect current moves in political discourse analysis to cross-disciplinary and methodological boundaries by integrating semiotics, particularly multimodality, cognition, context, genre and recipient design.

How genres emerge and evolve on the Internet has become one of the central questions in studies of computer-mediated communication (CMC). This book addresses the issue of genrefication by giving an in-depth analysis of email hoaxes as a candidate for digital genre status. Email hoaxes are deceptive messages that spread in digital social networks; they are a fascinating object for discourse linguistics as they exemplify a major pragmatic tendency in CMC, namely deceptivity and a lowering of sincerity standards. This study examines formal and functional aspects of email hoaxes and provides ample evidence both from a systematized corpus and in situ data collected online. Besides a structural and microlinguistic analysis, it identifies key issues such as pragmatic duality, narrativity and textual variation and change in email hoaxes. In conclusion, a digital genre model is outlined that bridges both the old/new and the formal/functional gaps and may be applied to many other digital genre ecologies.

Die Beiträge aus den unterschiedlichsten Wissenschaftsdisziplinen zeigen, dass Ideologien von jeher Wahrheitsansprüche formulierten, die im Verlauf ihrer Wirkungsgeschichte entweder als Irrtümer buchstäblich "Lügen gestraft" wurden oder von zeitgenössischen ideologischen Gegenentwürfen als solche bezeichnet wurden.

Misunderstandings in technology-mediated communication can be due to a lack of tone and facial expression on the part of the speaker, which provide additional context clues into the meaning of the message beyond textual representation. As technology becomes more of a ubiquitous element in our interactions with one another, further study into the ways in which language and humor are conveyed online and impact human communication is essential. Analyzing Language and Humor in Online Communication presents a compendium of research into virtual communities, online communication, social networks, and the ways that language, and humor in particular, are being conveyed and understood in these digital environments. Emphasizing examples from popular culture and contemporary media, this innovative publication fills the current void in the literature by focusing specifically on humor creation and perception in the digital age. Students, researchers, linguists, psychologists, media professionals, and sociologists will find this publication to be a unique reference source.

"Adam Jaworski tells his reader in the preface to The Power of Silence that he wants 'to show silence as a rich and powerful tool of communication and to provide some clues as to how it works in different areas of human communication and how it can be accounted for by various theories.' Jaworski does this, and more, in this very extensive exploration of silence as a means of communication. . . The gems of Jaworski's discussion come through his examples, which are woven together from his own Polish background and an astute coverage of cross-cultural (Polish, Amish, Apache), feminist and mass media research on silence. The book covers a broad scope of orientations: linguistic, psycholinguistic, paralinguistic, ethnographic, pragmatic, literary, and artistic. As such, The Power of Silence has broad appeal to anyone who deals even marginally with communication issues, especially teachers, who will appreciate his coverage of silence in the classroom. . . Jaworski's book serves the necessary function of bringing together various types of research on silence into one volume. . . . He has accomplished his task. It would not be a mistake to recommend the book to students as an introduction to silence and communication. Jaworski's full bibliography, and the book overall, is an invaluable resource for scholars of linguistics, communication theory, discourse analysis, political communication, literature, the rhetoric of art, intercultural communication, women and language, and mass media." --Discourse & Society Is silence the antithesis of communication? Or is it simply another way in which humans exchange information? In this theoretical yet accessible account of a variety of different aspects of silence, Jaworski contends that silence is an extremely powerful communicative tool. This innovative volume includes a research overview that shows the influence of related work in the fields of media studies, politics, gender studies, aesthetics, and literature. For example, one section of the book illustrates the power of silencing in politics; another chapter emphasizes the importance of silence beyond linguistics and politics in terms of artistic expression. By incorporating the work of a wide array of theorists--such as Brown and Levinson (politeness), Leach (taboo), Rosch (prototypes), and Sperber and Wilson (relevance)--Jaworski keeps his approach intentionally broad and eclectic in order to explore the concept of silence as a rich and evocative aspect of communication. The author argues that, in theoretically pragmatic terms, silence can be accounted for by the same principles as those of speech. He then investigates new ways of studying socially-motivated language, particularly emphasizing silence and the silenced. By applying several frameworks of analyses to both linguistic and non-linguistic dimensions of silence, Jaworski contributes to the integrative study of culture, of which language is an integral part. Researchers, professors, and advanced students throughout communication studies and sociolinguistics will find this volume to be an innovative and essential resource.
