Social Representations of Medically Assisted Fecundation a Study on the Discursive Construction of “Media Texts”  [PDF]
Amelia Manuti, Giuseppe Mininni
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2010.15043
Abstract: The present contribution moves from the theory of social representations (Moscovici, 1961) and focuses attention on the importance of social communication within negotiation processes of shared meanings. Actually, discursive psychology (Potter, & Wetherell, 1987; Billig, 1991) has showed that social representation have a narrative nature since they organize the cognitive schemata that people use to give sense to the world (Lazlo, 1997). In such a frame a crucial role is played by mass media, which do contribute to construct and convey the figurative nucleus of each representation (Mininni, 2004). By adopting this discursive perspective, the present contribution aims at investigating the social debate about assisted fecundation which in Italy has accompanied the campaign for the abrogation of Law 40. The corpus of data is made up of a sample of 46 media-texts collected within the weeks before the referendum. The data have been investigated by adopting diatextual analysis (Mininni, 1992; 2003; 2005).

Abstract: this study compares the use of discourse markers in 20 speakers with ers no cerebral damage, 25 patients with left hemisphere damage and 10 patients with right hemisphere damage. the analysis of variance (anova) shows that there is a significant dif difference between groups concerning the total use of discourse erence markers, but no significant dif difference in their relative ference use. the study also found a prevalence of y (?and?), the frequency of which doubles that of other discourse markers. we suggest that y has the features of a default marker in all populations. finally , we propose that discourse markers, in spite of their reduced phonetic, and semantic weight, are so important in the or organization of discourse that its ganization use is preserved in aphasia.
Reading Texts in Translation Classes: Discourse Analysis Perspectives
Abdulmuhsen Ayedh Alqahtani,Ahmad Bashar Aljidy
Theory and Practice in Language Studies , 2011, DOI: 10.4304/tpls.1.11.1507-1513
Abstract: This paper aims at finding out what opportunities discourse analysis can offer in teaching translation. Specifically, it attempts to determine what areas of discourse analysis are relevant to teaching Arabic-English translation at college level as well as to identify what translation instructors and students can borrow from other related disciplines and make use of them in the classroom. A critical review of published theories and models was done to examine the main concepts in this regards. The paper concludes with emphasizing the role of discourse analysis in the shift from target text being purely equivalency-oriented text to a dynamic-oriented text.
The Production of the Myth of “Sister Phoenix”: From the Perspective of Discourse Analysis  [PDF]
Jin Zhang
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2011.11002
Abstract: The analytical paper mainly deals with the questions how the image of Sister Phoenix, one of the most “popular” ugly stars in China is narrated, and how it is reconstructed and circulated by the media. In the paper, the author utilize multiple analytical devices, such as Gee’s seven building tasks (2010), Bahktin’s dialogical processes, Fairclough’s (2003) approaches to critical discourse analysis and Couldry’s (2010) theories about media discourse. The aim of the paper is not only to explore the reason why her self-narration is destined to attract the interest of the media and the modern Chinese society but also aims at seeking how the media constantly helps producing new categories of life in front of the audience.
Outstanding Rhetorical Devices and Textuality in Obama’s Speech in Ghana, Africa  [PDF]
Concepción Hernández-Guerra
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2012.23013
Abstract: Latest trends in political discursive analysis have shown the importance of the study done from the textual and contextual perspective alike. An oral speech has the property of having been prepared in advance but expressed with some improvisation so characteristics from written and oral texts must be taken into consideration. As a consequence, the structure of the discourse and the personal contribution of the author are seemingly relevant. The oral speech analyzed here was expressed in Ghana, Africa by President Barack Obama in 2009. Given the circumstances of Obama’s African origin and of visiting the country as the President of the United States, the elements that reveal the personal attitude comprise an extra interest. The aim of this paper is to analyze the speech from a discursive viewpoint in order to describe the textual and intertextual functions.

Abstract: with the investiture speech, a president shapes the image of a nation as well as their personal image in a ritual bearing a performative feature. an act of oath, the discourse is important because of its eloquent force and because it constitutes the first statement of a president or head of state. an inaugural address targets a broad and complex audience, even an international community. this article analyzes the features of inauguration speech from the analysis of the text of the take of possession for the consecutive term of two latin american presidents: álvaro uribe vélez, sworn on the 7th of august of 2006, and hugo chávez, who resumed the presidency of his country on the 10th of january of 2007. the article also studies, in each discourse, the use of the concept of a nation and the semantic boundaries of this word to determine the pragmatic outcomes as the result of its use. the method employed in the study was critical discourse analysis, one with a critical intent, as defined by fairclough (1995), van dijk (1999), wodak & meyer (2003). throughout the analysis of both discourses, it was possible to establish the structural stylistic differences as well as the different ways in which they construct the identity of both the speaker and the audience.

Eduardo Penhavel,Alessandra Regina Guerra
Revista Recorte , 2012,
Abstract: Within Textual-interactive Grammar, one of the parameters used to characterize discourse markers concerns the variable called “communicative autonomy”, which includes two possible linguistic features, namely, “presence of communicative autonomy” and “lack of communicative autonomy”. In this paper, we discuss such a variable and try to clarify when expressions present those features. In this respect, we suggest that an expression should be considered communicatively autonomous when it is able to work, by itself, as a complete and communicatively independent utterance.
