Book: News across Five Continents
Chapter: 10. Regional and Functional Variation - What do we Learn?
Chapter 10 summarises the key findings of the analysis and draws conclusions for the overarching questions. It looks at functional and regional variation separately and then combines the two approaches to see how the perspectives benefit from each other. Press freedom is taken up as a further factor in the analysis and we check for correlation with individual linguistic features, strengthening the assumption that freedom of press influences how news is presented linguistically.
