Abstract and Keywords

This chapter reviews efforts to examine the construction and content of
media products, and the role of the mass media in the language policymaking
process, with a particular focus on framing in mass media coverage. The
authors first elaborate what they mean by the term framing. Then they
illustrate how the concept of framing can help researchers to explore the
media’s mediation of language policymaking in three specific debates: the
dialect crisis in China; high-stakes English examinations in China; and
medium of instruction policy, with particular attention to the use of
English, Cantonese, and Putonghua in Hong Kong and the use of English and
Spanish in the US state of Arizona. The chapter concludes with suggestions
for expanding research on the role of mass media in language policymaking.
