    Different Ways to Express Personal Attitudes in Spanish and English Engineering Papers: An Analysis of Metadiscourse Devices, Affective Evaluation and Sentiment Analysis.Maria Luisa Carrió-Pastor - 2019 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 15 (1):45-67.
    The hypothesis of this paper is that writers with similar academic backgrounds express personal attitudes in English and in Spanish differently in research papers. Thus, the main objectives are, first, to study the differences in the use of attitude devices in Spanish and English academic discourse; second, to compare the results in the different sections of articles; and finally to study the positive or negative semantic implications of the lexical items by carrying out a sentiment analysis. To this end, fifteen (...)

  2. “Germany in Ruins”. Framing New Political Movements in Germany in the Polish Opinion-Forming Press.Karol Franczak - 2019 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 15 (1):97-119.
    One of the main goals of contemporary media, along with the experts and professionals, who speak in them, has been to explain complex issues and provide the audience with clear descriptions of social reality. This is mostly achieved by the production of ideologically useful interpretative schemes that facilitate understanding of the issues present on the media agenda.

    Persuasion Strategies in Media Discourse About Russia: Linguistic Ambiguity and Uncertainty.Douglas Mark Ponton, Vladimir Ozyumenko & Tatiana Larina - 2019 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 15 (1):3-22.
    The paper explores the role of the media in influencing public opinion from an inferential-pragmatic perspective. It presents preliminary results of the study focused on representation of Russia in Western newspapers. Drawing on Critical Discourse Analysis and media linguistics the study centres around the linguistic means of construing ambiguity/uncertainty, viewed as a strategy of persuasion. We mostly focus on the semantics of certain groups of words and other textual features such as indefinite pronouns, epistemic modality, passive voice, present perfect tense, (...)

  5. The (De)Legitimising Power of Narrative Reports: A Case Study of Covert Sayers.Anna Ewa Wieczorek - 2019 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 15 (1):23-44.
    One of two primary aims of this article is to advance a pragma-cognitive approach to the analysis of narrative reports used as parts of short narratives which draws on two salient theories: the Cognitive Approach proposed by Chilton and Cap's Proximisation Theory. The other equally important objective is to propose a taxonomy of covert sayers, i.e. actors whose words are reported by the current speaker, whose identity is concealed and may be retrieved via inferences drawn on the basis of shared (...)
