Powerful institutions ‘provide the newspapers with modes of discourse which already encode the attitudes of a powerful elite. Newspapers in part adopt this language for their own and … reproduce the attitudes of the powerful’ (Fowler, 1991: 23–24). : 24). ).

DMA investigates these multiple, ideological accounts of mythology that operate through the ideological articulations of different texts and practices.

There are a number of definitions of discourse that vary from one scholarly approach to the next. In addition to the conceptual understanding of discourse covered so far in this chapter, DMA sees discourse as ‘a culturally and socially organized way of speaking’ (Mayr, 2008: 7).
