|Title:||Word, Truth and Genre-Bending in Australia: The Drive to Amuse in Story or Report, Rather than to Inform||Contributor(s):||Ryan, John Sprott (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1815||Abstract:||In the last generation there has occurred in the Australian media a subtle shift of emphasis from the giving of information or formal reporting to a but little disguised purpose to entertain. Both social critics and lexicographers have endeavoured to date this phenomenon more precisely, and there is now offered a sequence of quotations which assist this identification, as well as a noticing of a new related term, the type of homophone of 'happenings', namely'happynings'.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Folklore, v.20, p. 99-102||Publisher:||Australian Folklore Association||Place of Publication:||Armidale||ISSN:||0819-0852||Field of Research (FOR):||200302 English Language||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://nla.gov.au/anbd.bib-an22043254
