The book presents the issue of impoliteness in media discourse found in television debates, films and computer-mediated communication. The phenomenon is viewed from different theoretical perspectives, namely prosody studies, corpus linguistics, media studies and audiovisual translation, neo-Gricean approaches, reception-oriented investigations and context-bound interpretations. Authors from ten different countries – Sweden, USA, Norway, New Zealand, Mexico, Georgia, France, Poland, India, and UAE – analyse data from nine languages – English, Swedish, Georgian, Polish, Arabic, Persian, French, Croatian and Montenegrin.
Anna Bączkowska is associate professor of linguistics at Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz (Poland). Her research interests include semantics, pragmatics, translation studies, psycholinguistics and applied linguistics. She is the editor of Linguistics Applied and two book series.
