This article presents partial results of a corpus based analysis of the explanatory journalistic genre nyhedsanalyse (news analysis) in Danish written news journalism. The analysis focuses on the framing occasioned by the head of 43 news analysis texts. In line with new rhetoric genre theory the object of the analysis is the historically and culturally determined social conventions presumed to be having an effect on the strategic and linguistic realisation of the framing act by the news analysis text. The realisation of the framing act is analysed in terms of genre analysis, schema theory, text understanding theory and information structure. On this basis, the framing act is defined as a typified and constitutive act of the news analysis text as typified social action. The analysis constitutes a supplement to framing analysis within cognitive linguistics and communication research.
