Sign, Language and Ritual: Contrastive Discourse Analysis of East German and Soviet TV News.
Pankow, Christiane
This research originated with the idea that a relationship exists between the culture-specific way of thinking on the one hand and the use of language in special contexts on the other, affecting both meaning and text structure. The goal of the research is to create an interlingual text corpus representing a special type of text that appears in different languages and different cultures. The text corpus (television news from East Germany, West Germany, Soviet Union, and the United States) and the research methodology, which involved charting text patterns and their indicators, are described. Text type and text pattern are the basic theoretical concepts used in the classification of empirical data. (JP)
