The O.J. Simpson Case as an Exercise in Narrative Analysis.
Lakoff, Robin
Discourse Processes, v23 n3 p547-66 1997
Illustrates ways the theories and methods of linguistics can be used to analyze discourse. Uses reports from American print media discussing facets of the O.J. Simpson case, its verdict, and subsequent events. Suggests that this discourse, viewed as a composite whole, represents a culture's creation, disillusion, and reestablishment of its sense of cohesion via the making of narrative. (SR)
