Metaphor Definition: A figure of speech used to show a similarity between two very different objects but, unlike simile, does not connect this comparison through the use of words like or as. In general, metaphors are more complex than similes, and are sometimes used to more vividly make a point or increase readers’ understanding of the author’s intention for writing the
As stated by Swan (2005: 211), news headlines are very often written in a special style, which is very different from ordinary English. In this style some special rules of grammar and words are often used in unusual ways. Swan (2005), stated some types of the special structure of headlines as
It was said by the Irish writer George Bernard Shaw that: “England and America are two countries separated by a common language”. In fact, among certain difficulties that English learners have to confront, the difference between American English and British English are one of the most confusing. It is generally assumed, however, that none of these varieties is more “correct” than the rest one, there are only preferences in use of them according to speakers’ circumstances. In the context of this essay, I would like to focus on three major differences between these two versions of English: grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary. Generally, there are two forms of English: the written form usually used in newspapers and textbooks (also known as “standard English”) and the spoken form.
Literary journalistic discourse is “perhaps the most intertextual of all texts, referring to other texts” in terms of transforming prior historical stories and restructuring conventional literary and journalistic genres and discourses in an attempt to generate a new one, that is, literary journalism (Mills 65-66). Thus, the journalistic discourse cannot be but dialogic and intertextual because its raw material is a news story that can be manipulated, adapted, and adopted by the literary journalist in order to compete other versions of the story. It “assimilates a variety of discourses” that “always to some extent question and relativize each other’s authority” (Waugh 6). Literary journalists, thus, are actively engaged in interpreting and scrutinizing the discursive practices of intertextuality in order to generate their distinctive but hybrid discourse. This hybrid discourse can be conceptualized using Edward Said’s notion of the “contrapuntal”.
history. His sources are wide and varied, using newspapers, secondary historical accounts, and public statements made by both figures inside and outside of the Birch Society. Mulloy uses Welch himself as a source the most extensively however, which does make sense as the Society operated “under completely authoritative control at all levels,” and because most of its ideas came from Welch himself. The book itself is rather short, which leaves out some other important areas that Mulloy could, and perhaps should have covered. For example, throughout the book he mentions The Second Red Scare, McCarthyism and the American Commonest Party, but they are more like passing comments and he doesn’t give enough context.
Moving to the syntactic features, it is also noticeable that both English and Arabic documentary texts are restricted to a complex syntactic level. Firstly, nominalization is one of the most striking features in documentary English and Arabic. Quirk et al(1985) defines nominalization as “ a noun phrase that has a systematic correspondence with a clausal prediction which includes a head noun morphologically related to a corresponding verb” (p.1288). Simply, nominalization is a process by which a verb phrase is transformed into a noun(Chomsky,1968,p.2). Stanojević(2011) also explains that documentary language often uses nouns that derived from verbs instead of using verbs.
Newspaper language is disparate from the language of art or methodical literary work, from unofficial discussion. It is an outcome of the long choice language, ways of articulation. The language of the newspaper communication transmitted through a messenger which has improved in the principle of English in a historical manner have a line of the ordinary characteristics altering from an period by a period, and a collection of the intimate characteristics intrinsic in detached newspaper types, issues as well. Quantitative and qualitative process of breaking down a subject and studying of newspaper word showed considerable proportion of own labels: toponymy, anthroponomy, names of constitutions and associations etc. Distinctive characteristic of newspaper words is a big number of governmental
Britain and the United States have cities in which newspapers have become huge enterprises (i.e. London and Chicago or New York City). With this concept comes a heavy sense of competition between newspapers, and also a heavy sense of responsibility by the people in charge of the gate-keeping or the preparation of said news. Although the newspapers in both countries function in a similar manner, there are large difference between the two in terms of acceptable and proper journalism, which stem not from only the history of the press in each country, but from their systems of government as well. Newspapers in England began in the second half of the 18th Century in the basic form they are recognized in today.
Social media contributes to marketing which advertising has been a big deal on internet. Marketers appear to be curious on the opportunities to post advertisements on the World Wide Web. Internet had more advantage on making easy transactions between the consumers (Wen, 1997). Digital advertising, also called “Online Advertising”, is the use of internet as the media of marketing to gain and attract more customers (Beal, 2015). The popularity of internet brought more ideas on
