US$ 41.95


 


Tabloid Britainexamines four popular tabloid newspapers and uncovers the variety of linguistics strategies they use to depict contemporary Britain.  These strategies are shown to construct, in a circular fashion, an impersonation of the language of the community of readers which the newspapers seek to attract.


 


Including examples taken from a month-long study, Martin Conboy considers how this imaginary community of the British nation is drawn through themes such as 'outsiders' and  'insiders', women, celebrity, history and politics.  Conboy also demonstrates how the tabloids constitute a successful modern variation of journalism hich has extended its influence beyond the boundaries of print and triggered debate about the related phenomenon of 'tabloidization'.


This critical study of the newspapers' version of popular rhetoric will be of interest to students and researchers in the fields of English, Media and Communication, and Journalism.>
