Abstract

This paper is a contribution to contrastive textology of media discourse. After linguistic definitions of <i>text type (Textsorte)</i> and bimodal texts (constituted by verbal and non-verbal elements) the text type <i>obituary</i> is characterized as an advertisement in a daily newspaper announcing death of a person &#8211; normally before the funeral. The examples are analysed and compared by linguistic and semiotic methods, showing textual, intercultural and semiotic particularities.
