Hi!
I am currently working on my English Language Investigation for coursework and I'm comparing language in tabloids with language in broadsheets. I'm confused as to which frameworks to include certain features in. So far my frameworks are lexis/semantics, pragmatics and grammar. For example, there is a lot of persuasive language - should I make a separate framework for this? Or which should I put it in?
Thanks

Hi Saskia,
I teach this coursework so I should be able to help. What topic are you writing about i.e. what are the newspaper articles about? It might help to look at how the different types of newspaper frame the same topic. That way you could add a section on 'language techniques' and consider persuasive language in there. You would probably find that the broadsheet steers clear of hyperbole etc. but may steer the readers in more subtle ways.

Thank you for your help! The articles are about the refugee crisis. That's a very good idea
