CRITICAL DISCOURSE ANALYSIS: THEORY AND METHOD IN SOCIAL AND LITERARY FRAMEWORK

Roma Ulinnuha

Abstract


Abstract: Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) serves as one of the tools to analyze
the linguistic and the social. This article aims at investigating the relevance of ideas
amongst CDA figures—Fairclough, Van Dijk, Wodak, and Kristeva—to both social
and literary studies. This includes some significant points such as discourse, social
practice, representation, power and intertextuality. The article shows, based on literary
study, the aim of CDA applied linguistic aspect is to reveal the hidden in the analytical
level of individual, institutional or social, i.e. domination and the abuse of power. CDA
figures agreed to some extent that the complex interactions of discourse and social
could not be analyzed, unless it utilized the approaches of linguistic and social. In the
course of identity, for instance, CDA abridges the social and the linguistic realm. CDA,
in this regard, mainly advocates the under-privileged representations of everyday life.
