The Linguistics of Journalism

The Linguistics of Journalism

In the framework of discussions on the quality of journalism, one of the main issues that has been frequently ignored, is the intertextual importance of linguistics, and the responsibility of journalists in preserving the structure of language, while communicating facts in an accurate manner. In practice, the Media, sometimes can be a threat to linguistics but at the same time be an excellent tool in the creation of new expressions or even a brand new language or a new grammar. For those interested in analysing these issues and interacting with other members here at EJC, come join the discussion.
