Min Zhou


As an emerging discipline, ecolinguistics has been of considerable interest to scholars at home and abroad in different fields, with the deterioration of global ecological situation and the improvement of people’s ecological awareness. Ecolinguistics should be concerned not only with the studies on the relationship among human, nature and society, but also with the studies on the language itself, such as sound, form and meaning. Therefore, taking as a theoretical framework attitude system, a subsystem of Appraisal Theory, this paper will analyze how the attitudinal resources are distributed and then reveal the ecological meaning and the hidden ideology embodied in news reports as well as explore how environmental news reports affect human ecological awareness and the ecological environment in terms of environmental news reports selectively collected from China Daily in 2022.
