The Style In The Language Of Promotional Literature
AbstractAdvertising is an inevitable part of the modern capitalist consumer society whose outstanding feature is its competitive fight. The aim of advertising is to be catchy and easy to remember. Advertisers use language quite distinctively: there are advantages in making bizarre and controversial statements in unusual ways as well as communicating with people using simple, straightforward language. Copy-writers are well-known for playing with words and manipulating or distorting their everyday meanings. They break the rules of language for effect, use words out of context and even make up new ones.
