Summary/Abstract: The production and decoding of media texts are phenomena that display certain linguistic and extralinguistic peculiarities. In the case of audiovisual texts, there is a set of overtly expressed meanings accompanied by a number of hidden, unstated meanings, called implied or implicated meanings. This study attempts to make a contrastive analysis of presuppositions on a corpus extracted from two main types of media texts: the discourse of advertising and radio news, focusing on the semantic-pragmatic implications of each.
