Abstract [en]

Attitude refers to one of the three subsystems of Appraisal and is a tool used by linguists to map feelings. This paper studies five plain English news articles and their source texts, in order to establish whether and how there are differences in terms of Attitude between the plain English texts and their source texts, and whether the two text categories belong to different evaluative keys, i.e. different voices. Following Martin and White (2005), the ten texts were analysed manually and the results presented in tables and commented on. The results show that a plain English text frequently has its own emphasis and message, that there is proportionally more authorial-sourced Attitude in the plain English texts, but that all the texts belong to the same evaluative key.
