Modality system, an important part of the interpersonal function of discourse, is generally used to indicate the author’s cognition and attitude, which contributes the basic representation of subjectivization. Meanwhile, news discourse generally emphasizes the objectivity principle and the author’s subjective standpoint and opinion should be avoided. As the modality system may involve the modal meaning of objectivity in different contexts, it has the characteristic of subjective-objective transformation in discourse. Therefore, the modality system in the news text can be used to hide the author’s subjective ideology, but also can express its objectivity. Taking American media related reports on Japan’s nuclear waste water discharge into the sea as examples, this thesis explores the subjective-objective transformation of modality system in news reports.

News: Australia’s biggest university, Monash, is pulling out of South Africa after 18 years

After 18 years, Australia's Monash University will be pulling out of South Africa, selling out to JSE-listed education group Advtech in a R340 million deal.

Monash South Africa was registered in 2000, and markets itself as a local provider of degrees with international brand recognition. Its Johannesburg campus has a capacity of 6,500 students and features a number of student residences, popular among students from other African countries.

But the Monash name will disappear from that campus, its soon-to-be new owners say.
