Abstract

Multimodality has become an exciting frontier of research. In this study, I de-ploy the Appraisal theory of discourse semantics within systemic-functional lin-guistics and the social semiotic approach of multimodal discourse analysis on im-ages and texts to analyze the interperson-al meaning-making of posters from the US during World War II. It is found that images and verbiages of the multimodal texts of posters co-work in the process of naturalization and realizations of the in-terpersonal control of the potential view-ers. Such an analysis will arouse the awareness of how interpersonal meaning is construed in the viewers and the poster designers.
