Nalyse how textual cohesion is achieved in the newspaper editorials from two national (English) newspapers.
Include in your analysis reference to the use of cohesive ties. Discuss the shared social and cultural knowledge that is assumed of the readership and how this contributes to the coherence of the message
I have attached three editorials as well as any suplimentary articles that need to be directly used as primary texts.
Also here is a list of some secondary reading that needs to be included:
Bell, A (1991); The Language of News Media, Oxford: Blackwell, Chapter 9, pp175-211
Bignell, J (2002); Media Semiotics, 2nd Edition: Manchester: Manchester University Press.
Halliday, M.A.K and R. Hasan (1976); Cohesion in English, London: Longman.
Reah, D (2002); The Language of Newspapers, London: Routledge.
