The data for the study are drawn from the four major newspapers in Hong Kong Ming Pao Daily News, Sing Tao Jih Pao, Apple Daily News, and Oriental Daily News from 2000 to 2002, both the advertising and the news texts being included. Various forms of orality that are mingled in the different types of written media discourse are identified, and the functions and values of these orality oriented features or strategies are discussed. Finally, implications and suggestions are provided for a dynamic approach towards language use and cultural expressions in a society.
