Additional examples of linguistic devices that construct newsworthiness

Additional examples for some news values and selected linguistic devices are listed in the PDF, available for download below. Because of space constraints these were not included in either Bednarek & Caple (2017, The Discourse of News Values, OUP) or in the ‘inventory of linguistic devices’, although a few are mentioned in Bednarek & Caple (2012, News Discourse, Bloomsbury). The examples come from authentic English-language news items.
