The discourse of business newspaper articles - a critical, multi-level analysis and its potential application in teaching practice

Project Details


The thesis intentionally designed as a multi-disciplinary work aims at analysing representative business newspaper articles and establishing particular characteristics inherent to these texts, both in a micro and macro context.
In order to achieve this objective a suitable multi-level inventory of linguistic methods (such as critical discourse analysis, systemic functional grammar and media discourse analysis) has been developed and utilised.
On the basis of this methodology and its tools a framework for a model applicable in teaching practice is to be developed with the ultimate aim of enabling students to conduct business text analyses in a systematic way.
