Keywords:Critical Discourse Analysis, TV talk shows, linguistic features, construction of identities, pillars of society
The research aimed to carry out the critical discourse analysis of Khalil-Ur-Rehman’s speech in a discussion going on a live TV social talk show. The topic of the discussion was “Feminism and Aurat March”. The discussion took place between the famous playwright Khalil-Ur-Rehman, a religious person, and the former journalist Marvi Sarmid. It was controlled by a female anchor. The study was based on qualitative research. The data for the study was Khalil-Ur-Rehman’s speech which was collected from an online source. The three-dimensional model presented by Norman Fairclough’s model (2013) from Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) was used as a theoretical framework to carry out the analysis of this qualitative study. The results revealed that Khalil-UrRehman used certain linguistic features in his speech performing some purposes of communication such as synonyms, reiteration, rhetorical questions, propositional meaning, mood, cohesion, polarity, litotes, and references. It was found that his selection of words and behavior depicted his low social and cultural identity and background. The incident influenced society as it disagreed and rejected Khalil-Ur-Rehman’s views. The study will help in understanding the textual and social aspects of any discourse and explain how identities can be constructed through discourse.
