Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses


Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses (RAEI) is an international
well-known Journal on English Studies published annually since 1988 by
the University of Alicante (Spain). The abstracts of all the articles
published so far can be accessed at the following Internet address:

After the 1998 Special Issue on relevance theory, and the 2001 Special
Issue on pragmatics and translation, RAEI is currently is preparing a
Special Issue on pragmatics and media discourse(s). We would like to
invite any contributors who are doing research on this field to
participate in this volume which will appear in November 2005. Papers
dealing with any contribution that pragmatics can make to the analysis
of media discourses will be welcome, either theoretical of practical

Any area of pragmatics is welcome (relevance theory, discourse analysis,
critical discourse analysis, conversation analysis, politeness theory,
speech act theory, interactional sociolinguistics, nonverbal
communication, etc.) and they can be applied to a wide range of media
discourses (the press, TV discourse, film discourse, Internet discourse,
advertising, cartoons, comics, radio discourse, etc.). We think that
this area of pragmatic research is underdeveloped and that a special
volume like this one will no doubt contribute to a better understanding
of how pragmatics can be applied to these media discourses.

Contributions, which should not be longer than 12.000 words, should be
submitted before April 30th 2005, complying with the general RAEI
guidelines for the submission of manuscripts which are accessible at the
following Internet address:

Manuscripts (2 hard copies) should be sent to the following address:
