Deadline extended:


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:


RAEI is currently is preparing a Special Issue on linguistic analyses of
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 July 2006. Papers dealing with any contribution that
linguistics can make to the analysis of media discourses will be
welcome, either theoretical of practical applications.

Any area of linguistics is welcome (systemic linguistics, semantics,
general pragmatics, 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.). Preferrably, contribution should deal
with media discourses in English, but applications to other languages
will also be welcome, provided that the articles are written in English.

      We think that this area of linguistic research is underdeveloped
and that a special volume like this one will no doubt contribute to a
better understanding of how it can be applied to these media discourses.

Contributions, which should not be longer than 12.000 words, should be
submitted before February 28th 2006, 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:
