Introduction

The research is set to carry out a Critical Discourse Analysis of the Urdu language (National language in Pakistan). Since the journal of Norman Fairclough’s Language and Power and Ruth Wodak’s Language, Power and Ideology Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) has not only developed int an important area of study in its own but also has been extensively accepted by investigators in a variety of disciplines from Biblical educations (Van Noppen 1996) to city development (Hastings 1999).In the overall introduction to Critical Discourse Analysis (1995), an assortment of his documents written in the 1980s, Fairclough described CDA as having “passed through the first flush of youth” and “embarked upon the maturation process”. CDA has indeed sought a repute, though it has produced challenging arsenal, and established substantial ability by means of its manoeuvres. In my opinion, it has improved past a revolutionary derogatory from the limitations to an efficacious attack on the gun’s mouth. The chief invention employed by Critical Discourse Analysis is the incorporation of the spectator’s role in the clarification of discourse and the extension of the space of investigation past the written, spreading it to intertextual report. Critical Discourse Analysis does not have a unitary theoretical framework or methodology. It is best viewed as a shared perspective comprising a variety of approaches instead of a school. Historically, Critical Discourse Analysis is an evolution from the Critical Linguistics developed in late 1979 by several theorists at the University of East Anglia. In this discussion am will focus on the Critical Discourse Analysis as a tool to analyze the short new article to understand how discourse is implicated in relations of power. By employing Fairclough’s model for CDA, which has three inter-related dimensions of discourse; the object analysis; the process investigation; and the socio-historical conditions are leading these procedures. I will analyze the language into description, interpretation, and explanation parts to be able to focus on the signifiers that make up the text.
