Conclusions: Speaking in tongues about Europe

Show Summary Details


The final chapter provides an overall assessment of the methodologies used in the volume, the problems related to working with newspaper and TV news data, and the intricacies of providing comparative analyses of equivalent lexical items in different languages. It concludes by arguing that despite the different approaches that linguists and mainstream political and social scientists have towards the data they are studying, the analysis of language can usefully complement the analysis of politics.
