The Virtual Mosque

How are Muslims and Islam talked about in the UK press? This is the question linguist Professor Tony McEnery wanted to answer.

His team looked at the usage of the phrase ‘Muslim World’, and Mr McEnery argues that this phrase, which was used 11,000 times in articles discussing Islam written from 1998 to 2009 by the British press, highlights an unsettling trend in the media — using language that characterizes Muslims as violent and unusual — a trend that, as he shows, has a long history and he asks us to change.

We have set the video above to start playing at 2 minutes and 7 seconds, as this is when Professor McEnery begins his speech on the above topic.
