Abstract

This study aims to investigate the textual characteristics of the editorial and the commentary in one daily newspaper from Sweden, Dagens Nyheter (DN), and one from Finland, Hufvudstadsbladet (HBL). Furthermore, a contrastive analysis seeks to identify similarities and differences between the two subcorpora. The material comprises 20 articles. The findings show considerable similarities but also a number of differences. Common to both subcorpora is a reduced syntactic complexity with a dominance of paratactic structures, while instances of the passive voice occur more frequently in HBL. Another common feature is, contrary to expectation, a limited use of verbs for opinion forming purposes. On the lexical level, HBL uses a wider variety of pronouns than does DN, in which phrasemes are more prominent.
