Abstract:

The paper analyzes the language of Israeli gossip columns. The style used by columnists attempts to recreate the intimate interaction occuring when sharing gossip among friends. Though this gossip is printed in the media, a good columnist is able to challenge readers and engage them in deciphering enigmatic gossip items. This is achieved by a variety of discourse startegies, including style and code mixing, direct address to the audience and a unique persona of the column itself. The result is a fake intimacy that replicate oral exchange of information and compensate for the lack of immediacy. A new media discourse has been created, waiting for thorough analysis.
