It links between words in any text. In other words, cohesion is what gives a text texture through cohesive ties. There are two types of cohesive ties: lexical and grammatical ties. 2. Objectives of the study / research questions This research aims to find answers for the following questions: • What are the types of cohesion that are found commonly in the editorial articles?
The first one refers to something outside the language and inside it but the last one refers to something inside the language only. (Paltridge,2006,p.142) The fourth category in grammatical cohesion is conjunctions. Conjunctions are links and words that tie and knit the sentences in cohesive manner. They are divided into various types such as: additives, adversatives, causal, temporal and continuatives. The place of conjunctive adjunct is at the beginning of any sentence and it has its significant role.
There are four practical and principled reasons for this interest. First, the media provide an easily accessible source of language data for research and teaching purposes. Second, the media are important linguistic institutions. Their output makes up a large proportion of the language that people hear and read every day. Media usage reflects and shapes both language use and attitudes in a speech community.
The scope of study: This research is assigned to tackle cohesion in written media discourse. It addresses those who have cohesion in discourse within the scope of their study. In fact, Talbot (2007) defines media discourse as follows: Media discourse is a multidisciplinary field. In addition to extensive interest in media and cultural studies, it is the subject of scrutiny in linguistics - particularly conversation analysis, critical discourse analysis, ethnography of communication, linguistic anthropology, pragmatics and sociolinguistics - and also in cultural geography, phsychology, sociology and tourism studies ( p.3). According to her Media play a significant role in the modern world, for media are the main source for understanding the
INTRODUCTION Media plays an important role in covering various incidents that happen across the globe. They propagate news and essential information related to one part of the world to the other parts, so that each and every being is aware of what is happening in the current situation and how they can prepare themselves for any problems that might occur in future. Media is responsible for covering intricate facts and details about various happenings. Media plays an important role in reporting various updates
Media can be defined as the main means of mass communication. It acts as an essential part of society. Allowing us to be informed and feel included. Forms of media have changed throughout the years enormously and with that said, has increased with importance. Media helps society form opinions on everyday events.
According to communication studies, in order to adequately convey true messages to the world, there are a few elements that have to be examined in which are who the broadcasters are, what the content of the media interprets, through which form of channels, the viewers as well as the effects it has brought and will bring to the audiences (Shoemaker & Reese, 1996, Pg.21). However, these elements are not precise as they only focus on what is important and favourable to them, which are the audience as well as the effects it brings, and to achieve that, the application of framing and agenda setting is enforced, and this in turn creates a perception of reality to the world. Though the content of the media focuses on incidents happening in the world, they also pose the ability to select, frame and omit certain components of the full story. This manipulates the representation of reality and thus constructs a perception of reality to the audiences. For example, Televisions would deceive people visually through the use of camera angles and other means.
INFLUENCE OF MEDIA ON THE TYPES OF COMMUNICATION Mass media is basically communication—either written, broadcast, or spoken—that reaches a huge audience. This includes television, radio, advertising, movies, the Internet, newspapers, magazines, and so on. Mass media is a powerful source in modern culture. Communities are bombarded frequently with messages from a collection of sources such as TV, billboards, and magazines, to name a few. These messages promote not only products, but moods, attitudes.
Media used in communication if the communicator and/or the number of many (Effendy, 1993, p.16). Media is an important point in the activities of Public Relations (Grener, 1993, p. 23). The strategic value of communication media is (Kasali, 2003, p. 162): 1. Information Value: communication media that should display the values of quality information and useful
Media also helps to communicate information electronically through sounds and images. In a democracy, media serve as a linkage mechanism between people and their government. There is one law in Malaysia that protects media freedom which is Article 10 of the Constitution. There are limits to this freedom, and these limits are defined by the Government. (The Media Council, 2014) Media freedom is defined the freedom of communicating and expressing
