Abstract (in English): 

The interaction between critical discourse analysis and the New Media, with their extensions, has become a socially relevant tool used by scholars in interrogating different phenomena such as medical interactions, digital literature, media texts, political campaigns, insecurity and other social narratives.From the perspectives presented in this collection of research papers, it is evident that the days of linguistic research without social significance and application are gone. This finding is underlying the practical approach in the works of Professor Rotimi Taiwo to whom this book is dedicated.
