Abstract

Critical discourse analysis as a type of social practice reveals how linguistic choices enable speakers to manipulate the realizations of agency and power in the representation of action.The present study examines the relationship between language and ideology and explores how such a relationship is represented in the analysis of spoken text and to show how declarative knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, and ideology act and perform in the representation of macrostructures following Van Djik's (2005) Knowledge Management Model of Critical Dimension of Discourse Analysis was followed to determine the way in which spoken discourse involves jointly constructed interactions. Results indicate that communication skills are essential to social interaction and contribute to coherent discourse and features of situation affect participants' perceptions and their conscious behavioral decisions.
