This study is concerned with some of the reasons why we should study the forms of journalism more closely for a while, apart from the content and effects of journalistic messages. We therefore maintain that form can — to some extent — be separated from content. Some people argue that the aspects of communication are too closely entwined to be separated meaningfully. It is impossible to talk about one aspect without referring to the others. In this paper we take it more or less for granted that formal characteristics can be isolated in journalism, if only because textbooks in journalism are full of recipes containing descriptions of formal elements.
A more difficult problem is whether the mode of speech and the accompanying formal arrangements of the text include some given modes of in

For instance, the editorial, the news report and the feature may contain an unknown number of topics as forms, but they signify only three different styles of writing carrying an implicit message of how to interpret the author's intent. How closely styles of writing and presentation correlate with modes of interpretation is a problem I want to leave aside in this paper. We are more interested in the sender side of our problem. However, a regular feature of sender strategies is the nature of the audience. Journalism is embedded in more comprehensive social mores. Changes in form requires concurrent changes in rules of interaction, both for journalists and for their sources of information. But the kinds of information sources journalists usually contact is influenced by their own attitude to various phenomena, officials and political events as well as the nature of their audience.
The urgency of the present research is determined by the general orientation of the modern functional style distinctive paradigms. The approach proper to structural semantics adepts enables to find out a number of cognitive structures specific to representation of knowledge by these or those language forms, implicitly or explicitly. Most of the current linguistic researches strictly correspond to or mainly follow principles of cognitive and structural semantics, search for semantic meta paroles so as to provide objective description and analysis of the structure macro- and micro- components and distinctive features of this or that discourse.
So as to provide the theoretical basis required concerning discourse theories, functional style distinctive features, stylistic and semantic categories of expressivity, evaluation and emotionality, use of various tropes we refer to the latest linguistic theories developed by a number of researchers, among whom we focus mostly on N.D. Arutunova, I.V. Arnold, E.I. Sheigal, T.A. van Dijk, J.L.Austin, W.Empson, T.Givon, J.J.Gumperz, G.Leech, J.R. Searle, M.Shapiro, D.Shiffrin, A.Wierzbicka and many other both Russian and foreign linguists.
The purpose of the study is style analysis of specificity of reporting and argumentation in the political essays of English-speaking journalists concerning the current political situation in Russia. Therefore we intend to take into consideration the following problems:
providing definition of discourse concept,
characterizing political essays, as a functional style specific to journalism and mass media,
outlining logic and cognitive bases of the style proper to political essays, Скрыть
