Introduction

Middle

I am aware that there are a number of weaknesses around the data collected and analysed; i.) I chose two hundred words, whilst it was enough to work on, I would need a much larger sample to give me confidence about whether my hypothesis was true. ii.) I have chosen an article by one reporter from each newspaper. It is possible that if I had chosen another article by a different writer I may have had very different results therefore I should sample more articles. iii.) I have chosen a paper from one day. If I had more time I would have chosen a number of different reporters, different days and a range of issues such as, sports reports, editorials and general news items. Analysis 2 Investigation into sentence lengths from two different samples from two different types of newspaper. Hypothesis: I predict that the most popular sentence length will be sentences with sixteen to twenty words. I also think that from the sample of twenty sentences per newspaper, broadsheet will have more longer sentences, and will have the longest sentence. Method: I will select two pieces of writing consisting of twenty sentences each from two different newspapers , of which one will be a tabloid and the other will be a broadsheet. The topic of each of the samples will be the same, e.g. The Sudan Crisis. I will do this so that the two pieces of information will be comparable. By selecting twenty sentences from each article, I will have a big enough sample to give me enough information to interpret some good results; yet it is small enough to be easy to gather and sort. I will allow names and numbers as similar sorts of information are being used. Handling the data: I will firstly choose a piece of writing from each paper consisting of twenty sentences. I will then count the amount of words per sentence and put the information into a grouped frequency table as some sentences will be very long and some will be very short. ...read more.
