Abstract

This article reports an empirical study of the emotional power of media language in terms of its influence on shaping public opinion concerning human trafficking. The primary interest in this research lies in revealing whether media texts filled with stylistic devices substantially contribute to a change of readers’ emotional states, and if so, to what extent. The statistical sleuth has been undertaken in order to test the media effect. The results have great value for the study of media discourse within the paradigm of cognitive linguistics.
