'This is lucid, lean and up-to-date introduction to newspaper journalism and how to do it' - "Jane Taylor, The Surrey Institute of Art and Design
A practical introduction to journalism, and the broader context in which journalists operate, Newspaper Journalism covers the key elements and distinctive features that constitute good newspaper journalism. Engagingly written, the book is also a rich resource of real life examples, anecdotes, case studies and exercises.
Susan Pape and Susan Featherstone have drawn on their considerable experience to provide a solid grounding in the principles and practice of newspaper journalism. The resulting book recognises the needs of the profession and those seeking to enter it.
This book is also a section found in the more comprehensive resource titled: "Advice and Cautions for Independent Publishing Authors." While this book is not actually on the subject of indie authoring or publishing, it does relate to it indirectly because some independent authors do indeed write as freelancers for in-print newspapers. I also believe the experiences I relate regarding dishonestly within a newspaper I worked as a distribution agent for, further helps to educate readers, in regard to the types of scams that are perpetrated by those who are dishonest within the publishing world in general. There are many honest and highly ethical people in businesses, and public offices, including those in the newspaper industry but honesty can only maintain an upper-hand when accountability for potential dishonestly remains in place and is practiced when necessary. I also feel that the type practices I describe in the chapters of this book, that I witnessed first-hand as a contract newspaper distributor, including illegitimate methods for increasing circulation by some newspaper companies, is far more common than the general public may realize. This also means that the cost of advertising being purchased from these newspapers, by businesses and consumers is sometimes illegitimately inflated by dishonest companies, based on false circulation numbers. Could it be that this is possibly one of the reasons for the continuing downfall of printed newspapers, with honest ones suffering, along with the dishonest ones? Written by a veteran "newsboy" with 16 years experience in newspaper sales.

This book describes new methodological and technological approaches to corpus building and presents recent research based on the "Norwegian Newspaper Corpus". This is a large monitor corpus of contemporary Norwegian language, compiled through daily harvesting of web newspapers. The book gives an overview of the corpus and its system architecture, and presents tools used for tasks such as text harvesting, annotation, topic classification and extraction and frequency profiling of new words and phrases. Among the innovative technologies is Corpuscle, a corpus query engine and management system which is flexible enough to handle very large corpora in an efficient way. The individual research contributions based on the corpus explore different aspects of Norwegian, including the occurrence of anglicisms, neologisms and terminology, and the use of metonymy and metaphor in newspaper language. The book also describes an innovative method of applying correspondence analysis and implicational analysis to investigate interdependencies between morphosyntactic variants.
