Example text

These paradigms, which in linguistics are called registers, are established by convention and usage, and are thus relatively more flexible than the paradigm of the words of the language itself (which changes very slowly). A paradigm itself is defined by a certain similarity between its units – for example, words appropriate to ‘a family meal time’. But within the paradigm, the units are clearly distinguished from each other. Thus, a unit in a paradigm has two dimensions of meaning: its relationship with and at the same time distinctiveness from its fellow units.

This showed that all those concerned with the law had power values well above average, with judges, attorneys and police officials being the most powerful of all television occupations; their power values were exceeded only by the more rarely represented occupations of foremen, ranch owners and clergymen. So we might infer that television’s over-representation of particular occupations may not be a distortion of reality, but may reflect the esteem given in our social value system to power over others, particularly when it is exerted by white males in their physical prime.

Violence is not in itself seen as good or evil, but when correlated with efficiency it is esteemed, for efficiency is a key socio-central value in a competitive society. Violence on television, then, is not a direct representation of real-life violence. Unlike real violence, its internal rules and constraints govern what it ‘means’ in any particular context to the observer, rather than to the combatants themselves. Its significance in a television fiction is that it externalizes people’s motives and status, makes visible their unstated relationships, and personalizes impersonal social conflicts between, for example, dominant and subordinate groups, law and anarchy, youth and age.
