A Study of Euphemisms in the Context  of English­speaking Media­  by Alireza Hoja i  This article was focused on the used of euphemism in the media. The research paper  describes the many definitions for euphemisms and the reasons one would use these  forms of phrases. The research team conducted a qualitative analysis of three different  channels: BBC World News, AlJazeera English, and France 24 English. For three months they recorded 30­minute news bulletins at random times during the day. Calculating the  frequencies, they were able to construct tables to organize the results and displayed that  the media channels had a higher frequency count for military, economy­related, and  poverty­related euphemisms. As a final note they noticed that the euphemisms used in the media were used as a way to deceive people.   Study on the Features of English Political  Euphemism and its Social Functions­  by Xiaonan Zhao  Although this paper does not have an experiment to follow the research, this paper is very informative. The paper focuses on English political euphemisms and the meaning they  hold. Zhao explains the features of political euphemisms such as how they are used to  control how much information a person is willing to share. They do this in order to  prevent controversial topics getting out of hand. This paper goes into detail about the  social function of political euphemisms by using Austin’s speech act theory to support  the claim.  A Corpus­based analysis of warfare  euphemisms.docx ­ by Trallovic Danijel   This paper consists of a corpus­based analysis on euphemisms. In the beginning the  author speaks about metaphors, then introduces the topic of euphemisms with definitions, and showing the purpose why one would use a euphemism. Danijel, summaries the claim  that euphemisms are divided into two categories, which are extra­linguistic and linguistic. With in these categories, the euphemisms can be broken down into smaller groups. An  example would be under the linguistic category, euphemisms are based on lexical  semantics and pragmatics. The main point of this paper is to show how euphemisms are  used during warfare throughout time and why are they used during these times. There are  two hypotheses that were to be tested; the first hypothesis is there would be an increase  use of euphemisms found in newspapers, new broadcasting, and magazines. The second  hypothesis was that these expressions would be found being used during times of war  more than years that there was no war. The results would show that this form of language is used in order to hide the harsh reality that occurs during a war. In order to conduct this  research Danijel used two separate corpuses, which are Corpus of Historical American  English (COHA), and Corpus of contemporary American English (COCA). After  selecting ten popular euphemisms from a website called EuphemisLlist, Danijel put them  into COHA and COCA to find the frequency in which they occurred in fiction,  newspapers, magazines, academic areas, and even in spoken language.             NOUN­NOUN EUPHEMISMS IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE GLOBAL  FINANCIAL CRISIS – Carmen Portero Munoz The method of research done for this paper was a study of noun­noun sequences that are  seen as being used for euphemistic phrases. These noun­noun sequences are used with a  euphemistic purpose. The material or phrases that will be considered are focused on  financial crisis and political topics. The paper goes into detail about the definition of a  euphemism and the purpose of them as the other papers do. What sets this paper apart  from the others is the focus of the nouns used for euphemistic purposes.
