- KurzbeschreibungThe language of the news has been found to have a <br>persuasive and powerful role in reproducing <br>discourse of a certain party. This study aims to <br>illustrate that the the two opposing <br>parties, The United States and Iraq, viewed the war <br>from different perspectives, thus producing <br>different discourses. A corpus of 90 news reports <br>taken from two English language newspapers, 'The New <br>York Times', published in the United States of <br>America and 'The Daily Star', published in Lebanon, <br>are analyzed using Halliday s transitivity model and <br>Lakoff s conceptual metaphors. The transitivity <br>model shows that each class of verbs creates <br>meanings and leads to implications on the part of <br>the reader in addition to insinuating a relationship <br>between news reporting and power. The results of the <br>conceptual metaphors show how each party justified <br>its course of action through the construction of <br>its own version of the 'fairy tale' of the war. <br>This study concludes that though the two newspapers <br>are reporting the same events, there are often two <br>different discourses that emerge in the reports <br>about the war which may in turn affect its readers <br>differently.
