Abstract

The present study is based on the critical discourse analysis, and it aims to examine the relationship between linguistic expressions and underlying values in the news reports. The study focuses on the incident of parallel traders happened in Hong Kong in the year of 2015, and it tries to examine how the incident was framed by the two local newspapers, and hopes to unpack the repo11ing perspectives represented in the two newspapers. 本研究基于批评性话语分析,它旨在表达新闻报道中的语言表达和价值之间的关系。此研究关注于香港2015年发生的水货客的抗议事件,着力探讨香港两家地方报纸如何报道此次事件,并试图对两家报纸的报道角度做简单分析。
