Put the variable truncate-lines to nil:

truncate-lines's value is nil
Automatically becomes buffer-local when set in any fashion.

*Non-nil means do not display continuation lines.
Instead, give each line of text just one screen line.

Note that this is overridden by the variable
`truncate-partial-width-windows' if that variable is non-nil
and this buffer is not full-frame width.

You can customize this variable.  -- Many modes set this variable to 
't: array, bookmark, gnus, man, reftex ...

And spend a day or two in the customize menu! With non-nil 
truncate-lines a line is soft-wrapped at the right by inserting a \ and 
continuing the next on the next few lines (excerpt from emacs running 
in Terminal):

       \item der Kopfhörer synchronisiert gar nicht, hat gar keinen 
       \item es gibt Zeiträume, in denen das Empfangene mit wenigen 
Hertz regelrecht zerhackt wird, \
je etwa 50\% der Zeit Geräusch des Gesendeten oder Ruhe;
       \item in Sendepausen beim Wechsel der CD oder Umdrehen der LP 
sind leise Plopp-Töne zu verneh\
%%      \item
%%      \item

truncate-partial-width-windows should be left true: it's easier then to 
position two buffers side by side and comparing them (at least for me).

As a start I can send you privately my .emacs or mac-emacs file from
