Deutsche und französische Pressetexte zum Thema ‚Islam‘
Die Wirkungsmacht impliziter Argumentationsmuster
[German and French Newspaper Articles on Islam]
Aims and Scope
This analysis of German and French newspaper articles on Islam focuses not on what is stated directly, but instead on what is implied between the lines. While exposing implicit patterns of argumentation, the author explores the communicative strategies they elicit in the reader. Especially when considering a controversial and emotionally charged issue, it is worthwhile to look at underlying meaning in journalistic writing and at the ways in which it contributes to shaping a social discourse.
