  • Media Independenceby James Bennett; Niki Strange

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Media independence is central to the organization, make-up, working practices and output of media systems across the globe. Often stemming from western notions of individual and political freedoms, independence has informed the development of media across a range of platforms: from the freedom of the press as the "fourth estate" and the rise of Hollywood?s... more...

  • Spoken Corpora and Linguistic Studiesby Tommaso Raso; Heliana Mello

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    This article aims to show how a corpus driven theory that analyses speech through information units can better account for Discourse Markers (DM) identification and analysis. We propose that the speech flow can only be properly analyzed if segmented into utterances and tone units through prosodic parameters. Utterances correspond to speech acts and... more...

  • Sprachphilosophieby Pirmin Stekeler-Weithofer

    C.H. Beck 2014; US$ 8.34

    Nur als sprachfähige Wesen sind wir personale Subjekte. Diese Einführung rückt die Sprachphilosophie daher ins Zentrum einer aufgeklärten Philosophie des Geistes, und zwar als sinnkritisches Selbstbewusstsein von Wissen und Wissenschaft. Sie erläutert die wichtigsten Beiträge aus der Geschichte dieser philosophischen Disziplin und macht den Leser mit... more...

  • Machen Medien Politik?by Nayla Fawzi

    Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft 2014; US$ 73.93

    Welche Wirkungen haben Massenmedien in den einzelnen Phasen des politischen Prozesses? Und welche Funktionen erfüllen sie für politische Akteure? Trotz ihrer hohen Relevanz wurden diese Fragen in der politischen Kommunikationsforschung bisher nicht umfassend untersucht. Im Rahmen der Debatte um eine Medialisierung von Politik widmet sich... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 71.95

  • Fictive Interactionby Esther Pascual

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    Language is intimately related to interaction. The question arises: Is the structure of interaction somehow mirrored in language structure and use? This book suggests a positive answer to this question by examining the ubiquitous phenomenon of fictive interaction, in which non-genuine conversational turns appear in discourse, even within clauses, phrases,... more...

  • Mediatization of Communicationby Knut Lundby

    De Gruyter Mouton 2014; US$ 280.00

    Mediatization characterizes changes in practices and institutions in media-saturated societies, thus denoting transformations of these societies. The volume makes a valuable contribution to the understanding of contemporary processes of social, cultural and political changes. The handbook offers a broad spectrum of different approaches to mediatization... more...

  • Visual Culture and Public Policyby Victor Bekkers; Rebecca Moody

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 166.00

    Traditionally, images have played an important role in politics and policy making, mostly in relation to propaganda and public communication. However, contemporary society is inundated with visual material due to the increasing ubiquity of media and visual technologies that facilitate the production, distribution and consumption of images in new and... more...

  • Media Transparency in Chinaby Baohui Xie; Mobo Gao

    Lexington Books 2014; US$ 84.99

    This book examines the problem of transparency in the news media in China through analysis of the political and market control jointly imposed by the party-state and the media. It argues that the gap between rhetoric and reality reveals the disjuncture of the party-state and the media from their political representation. more...

  • Sprachphilosophieby Heinrich Watzka; Michael Reder; Godehard Brüntrup

    Kohlhammer Verlag 2014; US$ 20.87

    Die Sprachphilosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts wäre ohne die bahnbrechenden Leistungen einiger Logiker (Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein) nicht möglich gewesen. An das Instrument der Sprachanalyse knüpften sich hochfliegende Hoffnungen im Blick auf Klarheit der Gedankenführung wie auch auf Fortschritte bei der Beantwortung von Grundlagenfragen wie der Erklärung... more...
