Abstract:

This corpus-based study of allusions in the British press shows the
range of targets journalists allude to -- from Shakespeare to TV
soaps, from Jane Austen to Hillary Clinton, from hymns to nursery
rhymes, proverbs, and riddles. It analyzes the linguistic forms
allusions take and demonstrates how allusions function meaningfully in
discourse. It explores the nature of the background cultural and
intertextual knowledge allusions demand of readers and sets out the
processing stages involved in understanding an allusion. Allusion is
integrated into existing theories of indirect language and linked to
idioms, word-play, and metaphor.
