MetadataShow full item record
Ontologic structures in a socio-political editorial — a socio-cognitive approach The aim of the present study is to analyze the conceptualization of ontological structures in a special type of journalistic writing represented by a socio-political editorial. According to the socio-cognitive approach (Goffman, 1991; Langacker 1986), the author discusses the problem of discursive mechanisms related to the persuasive function of language and classification. Therefore, in ba- sis of the gathered linguistic corpus, which constitutes of forty French editorials, treating about university and public service pension reforms, culled from the web pages of different journals and magazines (2007–2008), the author intends to de- scribe the distribution of two semantic roles such as agent and patient (by means of the synthetic scheme presented in this paper) in the context of the persuasiveness of media communication. The way of constructing the semantic roles of partici- pants both influences and modifies the readers’ opinions and their perception of the world.
