Introduction In a modern world today, the role of the media in publicizing and communicating information in educating the public is becoming increasingly important. It can be said that every home from various walks of life has the facilities in supporting all the advance mass media. Such as, Television, Radio, Computer and many more. The facilities offered by the Telekom Malaysia, Jaring, TM Net and so on has also added an important role of the media, especially electronic media, in the community. Internet has become one of the main sources of information.
Expanded upon the theory of Lakoff and Goffman, the politeness theory of Brown and Levinson is clearly the best known and most followed. Like Lakoff, Brown and Levinson examined politeness in term of conflict avoidance, but their explanatory is different. Central theme to their model of politeness is the abstract concept of “face”
Some media even create a virtual “community of readers”, where people can communicate with the editors and with each other. It allows to hold people, and in fact, the best response in competing with traditional media is a regular reader. Worldwide news networks promote the overcoming of cultural barriers, influencing public opinion, which leads to the consideration of all spheres of life in a global context. A common approach solving any kind of problems is formed, that allows to reach an overall agreement. Today, the media can provide people from different corners of the earth an objective and reliable information.
Cohesion patterns serve as one of the most important section related to grammar in discourse analysis, yet they are sometimes left unnoticed. This essay is going to take into account of those factors while analyzing the performance as well as assessing the effectiveness of the cohesive devices used in another essay of mine from Practical Grammar class. The material essay is presented as above, while this one will focus only on the most outstanding examples for the use of four cohesion aspects: reference, lexical cohesion, conjunction and collocation. First and foremost, there is the use of reference associated with the nouns. Europe and Mediterranean can be apparently identified by readers in the introduction of the essay because they are both
Moreover, resolution of such problems is a pre-requisite for generating good translation in target language. Divergences occur at different levels and severely affect the quality of a translation. The underlying principles for divergences are attributed to those cases where the basic concept of a sentence in the source language is expressed and distributed over different words or a series of different words in the target language (Dash 2004). As a language-dependent phenomenon, divergence may affect quality of a translation and reduce authenticity of a translated
And it says, the stronger those three factors are given the longer lexical retention will be. Need refers to motivational component. For example, when it is imposed by the task the need can be considered as moderate. On the other hand, when it is imposed by the learner himself the need is considered as strong. Search refers to the effort of learners to find the meaning when they encounter the L2 unknown words.
All these explicit cohesive ties give the text clear meaning. In their book Cohesion in English, Halliday and Hasan define cohesion as: The concept of cohesion can be usefully supplemented by that of register, since the two together effectively define a text. A text is a passage of discourse which is coherent in these two regards: it is coherent with respect to the context of the situation and therefore consistent in the register; and it is coherent with respect to it, and therefore, cohesive. Neither of the two conditions is sufficient without the other, nor does the one by necessity entail the other. Just as one can construct passages which are beautifully cohesive, but which fail as texts because they lack consistency of register there is no continuity of meaning in relation to the situation.
Chapter 1 Introduction In modern times creational activities like sport have a huge impact on the development of human life. Sports have become an intimate part of our lives. Everywhere around the globe almost everyone is dealing with the phenomenon of sport in some way or another.

I. 1. Scope of the Study: Media discourse refers to the communications and the interactions that occur all over the world as a process to spread information or points of view that may be political, economic, religious or social that involves minimising potential misunderstanding and overcoming any barriers to communication at each stage in the communication process; it could be a spoken speech such as the news on television broadcasts and radio stations or written texts like newspapers and magazines articles.
