Article / The Journalistic Language: from the ‘Nest of Languages’ to ‘The Linguistic Turn’

Abstract /

The article raises a characterization of the journalistic language from the review of the notion of 'nest of languages', following the new paradigm of the called 'linguistic turn' and an inductive methodology that gives account of the reality of the means on the current market of communication. First, one presents an interpretation of the concept of standard which is far away from the traditional vision, focused on the objectivity and on the neutralization of the style. Secondly, it deals with the colloquial register, determining the variables of use as well as its revitalizing aims of the text. Later, one treats the linguistic implications of the relationship between press and power, regarding both the bureaucratization of the informative speech and its metalinguistic singularity. Finally, the links between literature and journalism are re-formulated from the principle of stylistic selection depending on the expressive needs for the discursive representation of reality

Keywords /
