Abstract: This study offers a departure from the normal numeric crunching of financial figures in annual reports by providing a qualitative analysis to the investor story. Making use of Appraisal Theory, a recent development within Systemic Functional Linguistics as the key theoretical foundation, this report explores and examines different linguistic selections adopted by companies in their annual reports to shape reader perceptions.
