Media and Language is an electronic scientific journal for media language research. It is registered as an electronic scientific publication with index ISSN 2535-0587.
As a discipline in which the linguistic approach is combined with the media field as a subject of study, ie. as a linguistic and journalistic discipline, medialinguistics deals with the functioning of linguistic levels in media speech, the interrelationships of media linguistic practice with linguistic norms and codification, the normalization of widespread speach errors in the media, the trends and processes in the media and many other problems.
Medialinguistics is interested in the processes of mediation of contemporary society and the various aspects of the media impact on the audience (news discourse, advertising, public relations, etc.), as well as the peculiarities of the functioning of power discourses and the processes of mediation of politics through language and style. The understanding the main categories of media discourse and applying methods of analysis, rhetorical knowledge to create texts in mass communication, understanding the peculiarities of localization of media products taking into account the cultural differences in the media space are an essential part of the research in the field of media stylistics.
In Bulgarian science, the potential for media language research is high, but the popularization of research results in this field is weak. The purpose of the Media and Language Magazine is precisely to unite the efforts of researchers in this field and to create a platform on which related publications in the field of media language and style can be easily and quickly found. With increasing interest in contemporary phenomena such as the language of hate, the language of political correctness, the language of the media and politicians, and in the face of growing concern from a post-truth media and political influence, medialinguistic research has become a major benchmark for rapid and accurate reading media and political messages.
