Visual Persuasion: A Comparison of Visuals in Academic Texts and the Popular Press.
Miller, Thomas
English for Specific Purposes, v17 n1 p29-46 1998
Visual elements in articles in "Science" and "Newsweek" magazines are analyzed and compared using linguistic concepts of interpersonal, ideational, and textual meta-functions. Relationships between text and visual, between gloss and visual, and among the visuals themselves are examined. Visuals in academic text are mainly arguments, following formal conventions, while those in popular press function largely to attract attention. (Author/MSE)
