- The purpose of this paper is to apply the seven textuality criteria of Beaugrande and Dressler (1982) to general news reports and examine the relationship between news anchor comments and news stories. Indirect quotations in which others' words are transformed into one's own represent the most typical application of intertextuality. Accordingly, an examination of the relationship between news articles and anchor comments is intended to reveal an existence of intertextuality clearly. Textlinguistics perceives a news article as a piece of text. The current study makes a contribution to the literature in this area by examining how anchor comments can be classified and what makes such classification possible.
