Online newspapers: A substitute or complement for print newspapers and other information channels? ESTER DE WAAL, KLAUS SCHÖNBACH and EDMUND LAUF Abstract Research suggests that online newspapers are not as good as their printed counterparts in widening the range of topics their audience is aware of. But should we be concerned about that? So far, visiting online newspapers does not seem to be a substitute for reading traditional newspapers. But the evidence is scarce; only a few studies specifically look at the impact of online newspapers. In this study we look


This paper examines English-language online newspapers from the UK, the USA and Australia and analyses the images of news articles about migration. To do so, the newspapers The Guardian, USA Today and The Sydney Morning Herald have been chosen and news articles collected in August 2016. The corpus consists of 650 news articles comprising about half a million of words. From these, 1,300 images have been extracted, sorted into migration- and not migration-related images and then grouped thematically. Selected and high-frequency categories are examined in more detail, example images analysed more closely, and patterns found and common characteristics are discussed. Investigating a larger image corpus is rare in discourse analysis and is still missing for migration-related issues.

Johnson and Milani 2010 ) typically draw on a corpus of articles or broadcasts. In this study I take a different approach by focusing on a single online newspaper article and analysing the reader comments that were posted in response. The article attracted 130 comments from 91 different readers, creating a corpus of around 8,000 words. Of the 91 readers, 26 were identifiable as native speakers and 12 as non-native speakers, either through explicit self-identification or through other clues (e.g. “We are such pathetic monoglots”), either in the quoted comments or other

M. Dolores Porto Requejo and Isabel Alonso Belmonte Genres and online newspapers: Newsbites from a socio-cognitive perspective “Genres are sites of contention between stability and change. As products of dynamic societies, they are influenced by social structures, by changing social systems and not least by the rapidly growing technological development in modern society. As dynamic constructs, genres change with changes in society, and new genres emerge as a product of new technology. This creates a continual need for research in the changing nature of old genres

Simona Șimon 3 Necessary and Luxury English Loanwords in Some Romanian Online Newspapers and Magazines 3.1 Introduction After the 1989 fall of the communist regime, but particularly after the 2007 accession to the European Union, Romania has kept on strengthening the socio-economic, cultural, religious, and political ties with the rest of the world. In such a situation, ‘a “contact language” between persons who share neither a common native tongue nor a common (national) culture’ (Firth, 1996: 240) was obviously needed. As English is the 21st century
