Speech analysis in search of levels
In the plane of the meaning text, the levels are located: thematic, which corresponds to the global meanings, level of local meanings, which refers to the indirect implicit nature and direct explicit. In this part it is interested, in the global field, identify the issues that receive the most importance in the news, and in the local sphere, the concrete meanings of the words are collected.
At the level of global meanings, says Browne, the issues referred toIt is divided into local or indirect local meanings, that is, in the news it is not expressed “the difference” in an obvious way and it is necessary to infer it, relating the meanings of words of the text.
On the other hand, the formal plane context is divided into two parts: subtle formal structures, the contextual level. The first part corresponds to “the formal ideological devices of discourse that can issue fallacies, omit crucial information, while, in the second section, says Browne I the mental representations of memory are investigated. It is long -term memory where knowledge and opinions about what lived are stored.
In summary, in the formal context text, it is interested. In addition, the mental representations that are rooted in society are collected and that are maintained by language, historical categories linked to politics, economy and society. The second stage consists of performing a comparative analysis. This process combines two proposals;On the one hand, the critical analysis of ACD discourse and on the other.
In Browne’s original proposal, this stage is raised as a tool to compare news between two newspapers, however, in this analysis, the initial purpose is modified, and a comparison between news of the same newspaper is made, but which isdifferentiate by the themes and actors present in their development. At this stage the plans and their respective levels are linked, taking into account the topics collected in the previous matrix, and a comparative exercise is carried out. This initiative corresponds to a work by Del Valle (2005).
