Ištrauka

The news register is probably one of the most distinctive among the main four registers. It uses a special style of language, especially in headlines. News register uses a lot of adjectives in order to describe various world events from various life spheres.
The subject of this paper work is the analysis of the syntactic use of adjectives in news register. News register uses mainly two syntactic roles, i.e. attributive and predicative adjectives (Biber et al, 2002:189). Other five roles are very rare. However, the tendency to use attributives is very high. The distribution of attributive and predicative adjectives in news register is approximately 48 thousands of attributives and approximately only 11 thousands of predicatives (Biber et al, 2002:190). This is because attributives are an important device in adding information to noun phrases.
The aim of this course paper is to test the hypothesis that ‘in news <…> attributive adjectives are much more common than predicative adjectives’ (Biber et al, 2002:189) and to test the frequency of other five syntactic roles of adjectives in news register.
The corpus has been taken from the English online newspaper The Economist. This is a weekly newspaper published in London and distributed worldwide. The Economist focuses on world politics and business, but they also have regular sections of finance, the arts, science and technology. The section Science and Technology is rather interesting and informs on the newest inventions and discoveries in the world of science and technology.
The corpus contains 8 articles from the section Science and Technology from this online newspaper. The articles are included in Appendix. All the adjectives are highlighted in different colours: attributives in red, predicatives in blue, other roles in green.
The analysis contains 8 parts each of which presents the analysis of individual articles. Each part also contains a table which shows the quantity of identified adjectives in their syntactic roles. The analysis presents the total amount of adjectives and their density in the article. It shows how many adjectives have different syntactic roles. The repetitive adjectives and their occurrence are written down. There are some examples with repetitive adjectives that serve more than one syntactic role in the article.
Section 2 presents the basic theory on English adjectives and their syntactic characteristics. Section 3 contains the analysis of adjectives in syntactic roles across the selected corpus. Section 4 presents conclusion of this paper. Section 5 contains Appendixes. ...
