  • The aim of the study is to explore views of America’s w ar on terrorism in two Vietnamese newspapers, namely the People’s Daily and the New Hanoi. The study focuses on news reports relating to the Iraq war one year after it was provoked. The analysis of these reports is based on the analytical paradigm of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA). The analysis is a general characterization of the newspaper discourse exploring how ideologies are constructed through the wording and grammatical structure of the headlines and the lexicalisation of the discourse. The analysis results show an opposing view of America’s war on terrorism in two Vietnamese newspapers.

  • This paper investigates the use of the topic sentence in the popular genre of sociopolitical news discourse acrossEnglish and Vietnamese from a functional and formal perspective. In writing this paper, I hope to bring attention to the differences in the way news discourses are produced and consumed in these two languages. The results of this study clearly point to a number of major differences in terms of order and conceptual content of topics sentences as they occur in English and Vietnamese newspapers. Therefore, writers can improve their writing practices in accordance with international standards as much as readers do their discourse interpretation effectively.
