News talk : investigating the language of journalism by Colleen Cotter( )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by a former news reporter and editor, News Talk gives us an insider's view of the media, showing how journalists select and construct their news stories. Colleen Cotter goes behind the scenes, revealing how language is chosen and shaped by news staff into the stories we read and hear. Tracing news stories from start to finish, she shows how the actions of journalists and editors - and the limitations of news writing formulas - may distort a story that was prepared with the most determined effort to be fair and accurate. Using insights from both linguistics and journalism, News Talk is a remarkable picture of a hidden world and its working practices on both sides of the Atlantic. It will interest those involved in language study, media and communication studies and those who want to understand how media shape our language and our view of the world."--Jacket

Irish on the air : media, discourse, and minority-language development by Colleen Cotter( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Linguists have long pointed to the modern mass media as one of the main culprits in the worldwide erosion of minority languages and dialects. While the media get the blame for their role in the recent, accelerated obsolescence of languages, how they function in this role has not in fact been explored. Neither have the counter-examples--of minority-language speakers using the media to promote their socially or historically disfavored language--become part of mainstream discussion of the media's role in the death or preservation of language
