“…CL helps the interpretations to be more trustworthy (Subtirelu and Baker, 2018), which runs against subjectivity and over-generalization (Hart and Cap, 2014). The integration of CL and CDA can be traced back to the 1990s (Subtirelu and Baker, 2018), which has been extensively utilized to approach the discourse of law (Wu and Sun, 2019;Zhao et al, 2021;Cheng and Machin, 2022), media (van Dijk, 2021;Pei et al, 2022). This paper conducts the socio-cognitive discourse analysis, and the corpora in the present study contain 1.74 million words, randomly selected from China Court Network 1 ).…”

CD is widely read in over 200 countries and areas outside China with an average daily circulation of 600,000 worldwide and 300,000 domestically.…”
