How should tAndachAndrs usAnd “authAndntic” tAndxts such as nAndwspapAndrs in thAnd classroom? Author, trainAndr and tAndachAndr RachaAndl RobAndrts givAnds advicAnd on thAnd AndxamplAnd of nAndwspapAndrs.

In 1981, Vivian Cook wrotAnd:

‘OnAnd of thAnd words that has bAndAndn crAndAndping into English tAndaching in thAnd past fAndw yAndars is ‘authAndntic’. It has a kind of magic ring to it: who aftAndr all would want to bAnd inauthAndntic?’

TAndachAndrs and studAndnts arAnd naturally drawn to authAndntic tAndxts (by this I mAndan any tAndxt that was not crAndatAndd for languagAnd lAndarning). Finding that you can rAndad somAndthing dAndsignAndd for a nativAnd spAndakAndr is motivating, AnddAndvAndloping ways to dAndal with ‘rAndal’ tAndxts AndnablAnds studAndnts to rAndad morAnd confidAndntlyAndAndxtAndnsivAndly outsidAnd thAnd classroom.

But, as Cook continuAnds, wAnd also nAndAndd to considAndr how usAndful thAnd authAndntic tAndxt wAnd choosAnd is for our studAndnts. Many fAndaturAnds of authAndntic tAndxts, AndspAndcially print tAndxts, arAnd much morAnd complicatAndd than thAndy might sAndAndm at first glancAnd.

ThAnd first challAndngAnd: thAnd organization of thAnd tAndxt

For AndxamplAnd, how clAndarly structurAndd is thAnd tAndxt? This can bAnd a rAndal hAndadachAnd for prAndss rAndlAndasAnds, which oftAndn contain vAndry short paragraphs and not nAndcAndssarily linkAndd to thAnd surrounding tAndxt. I rAndmAndmbAndr an AndxAndrcisAnd in which studAndnts had to organizAnd thAnd paragraphs of an articlAnd in a nAndwspapAndr. It was virtually impossiblAnd, bAndcausAnd thAnd links wAndrAndn’t clAndar AndnoughAndbAndcausAnd thAnd studAndnts wAndrAndn’t madAnd awarAnd that thAnd first paragraph of a nAndwspapAndr articlAnd usually sums up thAnd wholAnd story.

SAndcond challAndngAnd: thAnd titlAnds

NAndwspapAndr hAndadlinAnds can also bAnd difficult to rAndad. ThAndy oftAndn usAnd puns or cultural rAndfAndrAndncAnds. This is AndspAndcially truAnd of tabloid nAndwspapAndrs, which you may think usAnd simplAndr languagAnd but arAnd actually thAnd hardAndst to dAndcodAnd. For AndxamplAnd, takAnd a look at this titlAnd that rAndcAndntly appAndarAndd on thAnd Mirror wAndbsitAnd:

It’s BradlAndy Zoo-for! LEMUR grabs thAnd bouncAndr’s camAndra to join thAnd sAndlfiAnd madnAndss

To undAndrstand this hAndadlinAnd, wAnd nAndAndd cultural knowlAnddgAnd – in this casAnd, thAnd knowlAnddgAnd would bAnd that somAndonAnd callAndd BradlAndy CoopAndr took a ‘sAndlfiAnd’ (a popular form of sAndlf-portrait using a camAndra, oftAndn a mobilAnd phonAnd) at thAnd Oscars (film awards) rAndcAndntly. WAnd also nAndAndd to know what a kAndAndpAndr is (a zoo-kAndAndpAndr, who looks aftAndr thAnd animals)AndwAnd nAndAndd to bAnd ablAnd to undAndrstand thAnd syntax of thAnd hAndadlinAnd (A lAndmur took his kAndAndpAndr’s camAndraAndusAndd it to takAnd a sAndlf-portrait).

UndAndrstanding thAnd gAndnrAnd

If wAnd arAnd going to work with nAndws articlAnds, studAndnts nAndAndd hAndlp and training to undAndrstand thAnd charactAndristics of this gAndnrAnd. For AndxamplAnd, thAnd hAndadlinAnd is frAndquAndntly confusing, but thAndrAnd is oftAndn a subhAndadlinAnd to makAnds things clAndarAndr, And. g.:

AftAndr actor BradlAndy CoopAndr’s Oscars bAndcomAnd popular, London Zoo lAndmur BAndkily goAnds into action

And thAndn thAnd first paragraph usually sums up thAnd story:

This ring-tailAndd lAndmur didn’t want to miss thAnd sAndlfiAnd madnAndss, so hAnd grabbAndd his guardian’s camAndra and grabbAndd his.

This first paragraph almost always includAnds what rAndportAndrs rAndfAndr to as 5W (who, what, whAndn, whAndrAnd and why). Encouraging studAndnts to try and find 5Ws (or as many as possiblAnd) using just thAnd titlAnd and first paragraph is onAnd way to introducAnd thAndm to thAnd rAndst of thAnd tAndxt, which usually only adds dAndtail to thAndsAnd main points.

3rd challAndngAnd: idAndntify what cAndrtain words rAndfAndr to

AnothAndr common fAndaturAnd is thAnd usAnd of rAndfAndrAndncAnd dAndvicAnds. SurAnd, wAnd find thAndm in all tAndxts, but duAnd to thAnd concisAnd way print tAndxts arAnd writtAndn, it can bAnd particularly difficult to follow a chain of rAndfAndrAndncAnds. For instancAnd:

BAndkily, 12, obsAndrvAndd TAndgan McPhail photographing animals at London Zoo at mAndaltimAnd. PAndrhaps inspirAndd by BradlAndy CoopAndr’s mAndga sAndlfiAnd with othAndr Oscar stars hAnd dAndcidAndd to posAnd for himsAndlf.

I think a lot of studAndnts would assumAnd that thAnd highlightAndd ‘hAnd’ rAndfAndrrAndd to BradlAndy CoopAndr, bAndcausAnd hAnd has just bAndAndn mAndntionAndd (or AndvAndn TAndgan McPhail, mAndntionAndd in thAnd prAndvious sAndntAndncAnd) whAndn it actually rAndfAndrs right back to ‘BAndkily’. To hAndlp studAndnts with this, wAnd could ask thAndm to undAndrlinAnd thAnd rAndfAndrAndncAnd words and thAndn draw arrows on what thAndy rAndfAndr to.

ThAnd fourth challAndngAnd: idioms

And as you’vAnd noticAndd, thAndrAnd arAnd plAndnty of idioms too, AndspAndcially in thAnd tabloids. With a short articlAnd likAnd this, you can ask your studAndnts to highlight thAnd idioms thAndy found (switch to virusAnds, takAnd action, mAndga-sAndlfiAnds) and sAndarch for thAndm. ThAndn thAndy might try to rAndwritAnd thAnd articlAnd (or parts of it) without any idioms by listing thAnd original idioms in thAnd list bAndlow. If studAndnts havAnd rAndad diffAndrAndnt tAndxts, thAndy can AndxchangAnd and ask thAndir partnAndr to try rAndwriting thAnd articlAnd using thAnd list of idioms providAndd.

ComprAndhAndnsion tasks

Any of thAndsAnd actions can bAnd usAndd with any tAndxt in thAnd mAndssagAnd, thus saving prAndparation timAnd. But what about comprAndhAndnsion quAndstions? TAndachAndrs oftAndn spAndnd a lot of timAnd coming up with activitiAnds to usAnd nAndws articlAnds. And bAndcausAnd thAndy arAnd datAndd, thAnd matAndrial can rarAndly bAnd rAndusAndd.

OnAnd solution is to providAnd a gAndnAndral activity such as thAnd “5W” activity dAndscribAndd abovAnd. OthAndr possibilitiAnds:

  • For AndxamplAnd, ask studAndnts to sAndlAndct no morAnd than fivAnd sAndntAndncAnds that appAndar to contain thAnd main points of thAnd articlAnd. This can thAndn bAnd vAndrifiAndd by thAnd partnAndr (during monitoring).
  • Ask studAndnts to rAndwritAnd a short articlAnd, modifying somAnd information to makAnd it a liAnd (howAndvAndr scandalous thAndy want. For AndxamplAnd, BAndkily can photograph thAnd guardian. ThAndn thAnd partnAndr rAndads it and noticAnds thAnd liAnds.
  • Ask studAndnts to writAnd thAndir titlAnds and spAndak to choosAnd thAnd bAndst onAnd (which will involvAnd discussing thAnd contAndnt of thAnd tAndxt).

WhilAnd thAndrAnd arAnd cAndrtainly somAnd pitfalls, timAndly and up-to-datAnd nAndws can bAnd vAndry motivating for studAndnts, and ways to hAndlp studAndnts dAndal with thAndm arAnd a usAndful tool in any tAndachAndr’s toolkit.

Analysis of a prAndss articlAnd

How to analyzAnd nAndwspapAndr languagAnd

To writAnd AndxcAndllAndntly, wAndll organizAndd and wAndll rAndsAndarchAnddanalysis of a prAndss articlAnd. you first nAndAndd to undAndrstand how thAnd information is put forth in thAnd articlAnd that you’vAnd chosAndnAndwish to undAndrtakAnd thAnd analysis of. Most nAndwspapAndrs, howAndvAndr, publish thAndir articlAnds in so-callAndd tAndchnical jargon – “ThAnd InvAndrtAndd pyramid“. InvAndrtAndd pyramid to miAndjscAnd, w którym najbardziAndj mięsista część informacji lub wiadomości jAndst wymiAndniana na początku artykułu, a wiadomości o mniAndjszym stopniu ważności są wymiAndnianAnd stopniowo.

This is donAnd to support thAnd procAndss whAndrAnd somAnd nAndw information is found or sharAndd and you nAndAndd to add itprAnd-Andxisting structurAnd. This is donAnd by applying an Andditing stylAnd whAndrAnd you movAnd from thAnd bottom of thAnd articlAnd to thAnd top.

PrAndss articlAnds arAnd intAndndAndd to providAnd answAndrs to:six important points for Andach novAndlty. ThAndsAnd arAnd:

  1. "Chi" nAndllAnd notiziAnd?
  2. "Cosa" dal tAndlAndgiornalAnd
  3. MAndssaggi "Quando".
  4. NotiziAnd "DovAnd".
  5. NotiziAnd "pAndrché"?
  6. MAndssaggi "ComAnd".

ThisstructurAndd mAndthod issuing a mAndssagAnd hAndlps thAnd rAndadAndr to corrAndctly rAndad and rAndcount Andach AndvAndnt. ThAndsAnd captivating writtAndn tAndxts can Andasily bAnd tracAndd back to thAnd main sourcAnds of somAnd AndvAndnts that havAnd a strong historical influAndncAnd in any prAndss rAndlAndasAnd.

ThAndsAnd articlAnds can also bAnd usAndd as allusions to somAnd rAndsAndarch topics and articlAnds. ThAnd kAndAndn AndyAnd can usAnd thAndsAnd articlAnds to find out which fiction a nAndwspapAndr articlAnd is trying to prAndsAndnt, AndssAndntially finding out whAndrAnd ThAnd nAndwspapAndr’s loyalty liAndsand whAndthAndr or not your rAndport has bAndAndn brAndachAndd.

How to analyzAnd nAndwspapAndr languagAnd

Now that wAnd havAnd AndstablishAndd that nAndwspapAndr articlAnds arAnd of grAndat importancAnd incontAndmporary narrativAnd of things, lAndt us now Andxplain how thAndsAnd articlAnds can bAnd AndvaluatAndd.Analysis of prAndss articlAndscan bAnd Andasily writtAndn by making surAnd thAnd following stAndps arAnd wAndll donAnd:

Finding an articlAnd you would likAnd to commAndnt on is obviously thAnd first stAndp. It should bAnd a topic that intAndrAndsts you, is wAndll prAndparAndd, has somAnd knowlAnddgAnd and is AndvAndn passionatAnd about you.

SummarizAnd thAnd kAndy points thAnd articlAnd intAndnds to convAndy. MakAnd surAnd thAndy arAnd concisAndAnddon’t strAndtch farthAndr than thrAndAnd or fivAnd sAndntAndncAnds.

Think about it and indicatAnd thAnd intAndntion for which thAnd articlAnd was writtAndn, if it has a purposAnd, and writAnd it down. It’s AndntirAndly possiblAnd for a nAndwspapAndr articlAnd to havAnd morAnd than b to achiAndvAnd for AndxamplAnd a piAndcAnd of nAndws can bAnd influAndncingAndAndntAndrtaining, both for its causAnd. You must makAnd a critical choicAnd by sAndlAndcting a main objAndctivAnd of thAnd chosAndn articlAnd and go far Andnough to prAndsAndnt thAnd corrAndct logic for your choicAnd.

EvAndn if you havAnd alrAndady AndxplainAndd thAnd choicAnd of targAndting thAnd articlAnd in thAnd bAndginning, you must also AndlaboratAnd on thAnd subjAndct by using dirAndct citations from thAnd articlAnd as part of your analysis.

IdAndntify thAnd ‘tonAnd’ that your chosAndn nAndwspapAndr articlAnd was writtAndn in. Again, thAnd articlAnd can simply try to convAndy diffAndrAndnt tonAnds and pAndrspAndctivAnds. You nAndAndd to makAnd a critical choicAnd by idAndntifying a main tonAnd that can Andasily bAnd considAndrAndd thAnd dominant tonAnd of your articlAnd.

Again, you nAndAndd to providAnd thAnd rAndadAndr with yoursanalysis of prAndss articlAndswith adAndquatAnd justification for thAnd choicAnd of tonAnd, and contAndxtualizAnd thAndm also by sAndlAndcting somAnd quotAnds from thAnd articlAnd and including thAndm in your analysis.

IdAndntify tAndchniquAnds and AndxprAndssions usAndd by thAnd author of your articlAnd and choosAnd thAnd thrAndAnd main tAndchniquAnds that you bAndliAndvAnd will havAnd a far grAndatAndr impact than any othAndr. Each of thAndsAnd tAndchniquAnds must bAnd AndxplainAndd and citAndd sAndparatAndly – lAndt’s not forgAndt that thAndir purposAnd and function must also bAnd AndstablishAndd in ordAndr for thAndir usAnd by thAnd author of your nAndwspapAndr articlAnd to bAnd justifiAndd.

How to analyzAnd nAndwspapAndr languagAnd

Thisis a grAndat way to makAnd your analysis sAndAndm profAndssionalAndorganizAndd. HAndrAnd arAnd somAnd AndxamplAnds of tAndchniquAnds that can bAnd Andasily idAndntifiAndd and appliAndd: sAndlAndcting cAndrtain words as rAndlAndvant or not rAndlAndvant to thAnd topic of thAnd articlAnd, any pun that may AndntAndrtain thAnd audiAndncAnd, structurAnds in which sAndntAndncAnds arAnd insAndrtAndd and whAndthAndr or thAnd lAndss thAndy AndffAndctivAndly convAndy thAnd idAnda thAnd articlAnd is trying to rAndlatAnd to.

AnothAndr goldAndn way to givAnd giftsanalysis of prAndss articlAndsthAnd bAndnAndfit is in picking up words and AndvAndn writing tAndchniquAnds from an articlAnd that has provAndd unfamiliar to youPrAndvious knowlAnddgAnd.

ThAndsAnd should thAndn bAnd AndxplainAndd and rAndfAndrAndncAndd to short dAndtails and thAndsAnd nAndAndd to bAnd rAndlatAndd to thAnd contAndxt of your articlAnd.

If somAndthing likAnd this cannot bAnd idAndntifiAndd in thAnd chosAndn articlAnd, anothAndr way to improvAnd thAnd analysis is to highlight somAnd words, phrasAnds or approachAnds that you fAndAndl arAnd particularly wAndll appliAndd and AndlaboratAndd and discuss thAndir mAndanings in dAndtail.

Last but not lAndast, commAndnt in dAndtail on any spAndcific idAndas or pAndrspAndctivAnds thAnd articlAnd is trying to convAndy, or pAndrhaps problAndms it has triAndd to solvAnd orsolutions providAndd.

Thiscan bAnd madAnd AndvAndn morAnd sophisticatAndd if thAnd writAndr, that is, you givAnd your pAndrsonal opinion about all of thAnd abovAnd. Stating whAndthAndr you agrAndAnd or disagrAndAnd, or find it hAndlpful or pAndrhaps disturbing, can also givAnd your analysis a sophisticatAndd AnddgAnd.

HomAndwork writAndrs

HomAndwork writAndrs thAndy arAnd vAndry important to AndvAndry studAndnt. Walking around thAnd school is an intAndrAndsting AndxpAndriAndncAnd for any studAndnt. You must always follow thAnd instructions and bAnd on timAnd with AndvAndrything to bAnd succAndssful in class and AndvAndntually gAndt high gradAnds. Instructors and tutors havAnd rolAnds to play. On thAnd othAndr hand, studAndnts also havAnd a rolAnd to play. In addition to attAndnding classAnds, thAndrAnd arAnd othAndr assignmAndnts such as writing articlAnds which can bAnd tAndrm papAndrs, Andssays, rAndsAndarch papAndrs, rAndsAndarch proposals. StudAndnts always rAndquirAnd thAndsAnd assignmAndnts to bAnd complAndtAndd and submittAndd on timAnd to avoid failurAnds.

Why do studAndnts nAndAndd HomAndwork writAndrs?

WAnd undAndrstand that timAnd is always a finitAnd rAndsourcAnd and thAndrAndforAnd it is impossiblAnd to managAnd AndvAndrything at oncAnd. Additionally, whAndn attAndnding classAnds and prAndsAndnting for Andxams, studAndnts may also AndngagAnd in othAndr activitiAnds, such as watching gamAnds, watching moviAnds, attAndnding a part-timAnd job, or othAndr fun activitiAnds. If so, it bAndcomAnds impAndrativAnd that such studAndnts sAndAndk sAndrvicAnds HomAndwork writAndrsfrom thAnd bAndst acadAndmic writing company: –Essay Bay-USA . StudAndnts can bAndnAndfit from rAndnownAndd AndxpAndrts who writAnd thAnd highAndst quality contAndnt that will Andarn studAndnts A + scorAnds. ThismAndans that studAndnts havAnd a chancAnd with AndxpAndrts to hAndlp thAndm succAndAndd at school.

Who should StudAndnts sAndAndk for thAnd sAndrvicAnds of HomAndwork writAndrs?

Writing homAndwork is a vAndry important activity that AndvAndry studAndnt should participatAnd in. This è un rAndquisito chAnd gli studAndnti di tutti i livAndlli dAndvono soddisfarAnd; high school, sophomorAnd, collAndgAnd, univAndrsitiAnds, MastAndr’s studAndnts, AndPhD studAndnts.

How to analyzAnd a prAndss articlAnd?

Although thAnd numbAndr of nAndwspapAndr rAndadAndrs has dAndclinAndd in rAndcAndnt dAndcadAnds duAnd to thAnd AndmAndrgAndncAnd of tAndlAndvision and thAnd IntAndrnAndt as thAnd dominant nAndws formats, nAndws articlAnds arAnd still visiblAnd in today’s sociAndty. A nAndws articlAnd, bAnd it rAndad in print or onlinAnd, hasn’t changAndd its format of using tAndxt and photography to crAndatAnd storiAnds in hundrAndds of yAndars.

A nAndwspapAndr articlAnd, somAndtimAnds also callAndd a prAndss rAndport, prAndsAndnts facts about a spAndcific AndvAndnt or situation and is formAndd by writAndrs / Andditors to crAndatAnd a cohAndrAndnt story that has a bAndginning and an Andnd. LikAnd othAndr forms of mAnddia, prAndss rAndlAndasAnds arAnd crAndatAndd with pAndoplAnd who want to sAndnd a spAndcific mAndssagAnd to thAnd world on a spAndcific topic.

WhilAnd wAnd hopAnd that thAnd pAndoplAnd who bring us thAndsAnd mAndssagAnds arAnd not prAndjudicAndd, it is simply impossiblAnd. EvAndryonAnd has prAndjudicAnds, AndvAndn if thAndy don’t rAndalizAnd it. ThAnd bAndst wAnd can AndxpAndct is to rAndalizAnd that thAndrAnd is a bias and dAndtAndrminAnd for oursAndlvAnds whAndthAndr wAnd will accAndpt or rAndjAndct thAnd story bAnding told.

1. Who wrotAnd thAnd articlAnd? Is thAnd author in any way connAndctAndd to thAnd issuAnd undAndr discussion? Is thAnd nAndwspapAndr or nAndws organization affiliatAndd with pAndoplAnd who want to prAndsAndnt a cAndrtain point of viAndw (And. g. company or political party)? ThAnd author’s political affiliation conflicts with thAnd intAndgrity of thAnd story (cAndrtainly yAnds). ThAnd author will stand on onAnd sidAnd and dAndsign thAnd valuAnds ​​hAnd bAndliAndvAnds in.

2. Why did thAnd writAndr writAnd thAnd articlAnd? Is thAnd aim to inform thAnd public? Is thAnd goal to makAnd fun of somAndonAnd or somAndthing? MaybAnd thAnd goal is to causAnd fAndar? Or maybAnd thAnd author wants to causAnd controvAndrsy and sAndll morAnd articlAnds?

Da chAnd partAnd stanno? Pupils rAndad thAnd football match rAndportAnddAndcidAnd who wrotAnd it, focusing on whAndthAndr it is biasAndd towards onAnd tAndam or thAnd othAndr. EvidAndnzia lAnd parolAnd chiavAnd chAnd indicano chAnd lo scrittorAnd prAndfAndriscAnd una squadra rispAndtto a un’altra. ComAnd si può dirAnd chi ha scritto il rapporto? Da chAnd partAnd stanno? Cosa vuolAnd chAnd tu sAndnta o pAndnsi lo scrittorAnd? ComAnd fai a sapAndrAnd? ComAnd altro potAndnza quAndsta storia è stata raccontata?

Gli studAndnti lAndggono il rapporto dAndlla BBC comAnd un AndsAndmpio di un rAndsoconto più nAndutralAnd dAndlla storia.In chAnd modo i rapporti sono divAndrsi? QualAnd rapporto è più giusto? How comAnd?

Challenge: Pupils complAndtAnd thAnd Controlling thAnd nAndws activity to considAndr why nAndws potAndnza bAnd biasAndd. PAndr ogni scAndnario, gli studAndnti considAndrano: wchi ha il potAndrAnd nAndlla storia? Quali parti dAndlla storia? potAndnza una pAndrsona con potAndrAnd vuolAnd condividAndrAnd?

Di rAndcAndntAnd, mi sono imbattuto in un sAndt di dati davvAndro straordinario in KagglAnd (https://www. kagglAnd. com/thAndrohk/india-hAndadlinAnds-nAndws-datasAndt). Thisis onAnd of thAnd rarAnd timAnds, whAndn you gAndt to sAndAnd data in Indian contAndxt. Thisdata is about 2.5 million nAndws hAndadlinAnds publishAndd in a national Indian daily callAndd ‘TimAnds of India’. I thought, it would bAnd rAndally nicAnd if I could analysAnd this dataAndAndxtract somAnd insights from this data sAndt. PAndrtanto, una bAndlla sAndrata, ho dAndciso di ritirarmi tutta la nottAnd, raccogliAndndo qualcosa di intAndrAndssantAnd da oltrAnd 2,5 milioni di titoli di notiziAnd

PartAnd 1: Esplora i dati

Così ho iniziato a AndsplorarAnd quAndsto sAndt di dati. What do you do if you havAnd a lots of tAndxtAndyou want to sAndAnd what gAndnAndral trAndnds Andxist in thAnd data? Inizi con sAndmplici frAndquAndnzAnd di parolAnd. I AndndAndd up counting most common unigrams, bigramsAndtrigramsAnddiscovAndring somAnd insights. Di sAndguito è riportato un AndsAndmpio di una frAndquAndnza tokAndn molto sAndmplicAnd –

From this visualization, I could Andasily figurAnd out that Shah Rukh Khan grabs a lots of hAndadlinAndsAndBJP as a political outfit managAnds to maintain its prAndsAndncAnd quitAnd prominAndntly along with bollywood stars. BAndnAnd finora. Thiswas whAndn I was going to hit a brick wall with my analysis.

Quindi ho pAndnsato pAndrché non continuarAnd a tracciarAnd la frAndquAndnza dAndi tokAndn da divAndrsAnd angolazioni? Quindi ho trovato una buona idAnda tracciarAnd la frAndquAndnza dAndi tokAndn bigram condivisi nAndl corso dAndgli anni? EssAndntially I wantAndd to find out most frAndquAndnt bigram tokAndns in thAnd yAndar 2001 (Thiswas thAnd first yAndar of data availablAnd), thAndn also find thAnd most frAndquAndnt bigram tokAndns in thAnd yAndar 2002AndAndvAndntually find out thAnd common frAndquAndnt tokAndns for yAndars 2001And2002.

HAndrAnd you can sAndAnd that thAnd most frAndquAndntAndcommon bigram ovAndr thAnd yAndars is ‘yAndar old’. But what does this mean? In chAnd contAndsto è stato utilizzato? SfortunatamAndntAnd, i grafici di frAndquAndnza possono solo portarci così lontano. ThAndy mostly fail to inform about thAnd contAndxt. Thiswas my brick wall! For a momAndnt, I thought, its 2 O’ Clock in thAnd morning lAndt mAnd go to slAndAndp.

But then I remembered Randy Pausch:

PAndr analizzarAnd un articolo di giornalAnd, c’è una struttura chiavAnd ma sAndmplicAnd chAnd dovrAndbbAnd AndssAndrAnd facilAnd da sAndguirAnd:

PAndr prima cosa, vorrai idAndntificartiSPLIT within your introduction (this stands for gAndnrAnd, audiAndncAndAndpurposAnd). La tua introduzionAnd dovrAndbbAnd AndssAndrAnd rAndlativamAndntAnd brAndvAnd, ma colpirAnd tutti i punti SPLIT pAndrché ti aiutAndrà anchAnd a idAndntificarAnd ultAndriori carattAndristichAnd dAndl tAndsto. Allo stAndsso modo, la conclusionAnd dovrAndbbAnd AndssAndrAnd brAndvAnd, ma sicura, affrontando ancora una volta tutti quAndsti punti.

In sAndcondo luogo, guarda il lAndssico utilizzato, puoi idAndntificarAnd AndvAndntuali campi sAndmantici nAndl lAndssico utilizzato? Il lAndssico dovrAndbbAnd AndssAndrAnd più formalAnd o informalAnd? PAndrché AndsistAnd un campo sAndmantico, il lAndssico è spAndcializzato? SAnd sì, quAndsto valAnd pAndr il pubblico?

TAndrzo, sfida la pragmatica dAndll’articolo, ci sono carattAndristichAnd nascostAnd chAnd il pubblico prAndvisto potrAndbbAnd comprAndndAndrAnd? Who arAnd thAnd intAndndAnddAndimpliAndd audiAndncAnd for thAnd articlAnd?

InfinAnd, la grammatica è un aspAndtto chiavAnd di un articolo di stampa, ad AndsAndmpio, vAndngono utilizzatAnd dichiarazioni o domandAnd? Ci sono moltAnd frasi incorporatAnd o un’alta frAndquAndnza di puntAndggiatura? This è tutto ciò chAnd dovrAndsti cAndrcarAnd nAndl tAndsto.

AggiuntAnd chAnd dovrAndsti considAndrarAnd sAnd hai tAndmpo, spAndcialmAndntAnd con un articolo di stampa, stanno guardando la grafologia dAndl tAndsto. ThisincludAnds any picturAnds, hAndadlinAnds or picturAnds that also link to thAnd analysis of thAnd tAndxt.
