Discourse analysis is a theme in postmodernism for writers like Paul Michel Foucault to analyze how people talk about
the world around them. Action-implicative discourse analysis is the name for a new type of
discourse analysis. Critical Discourse Analysis intervenes in social practice and
attempts to reveal connections between language use, power, and ideology.
The idea in discourse analysis is
that the way people talk does not reflect some objective truth about that world. The way
people talk reflects the success of particular ways of thinking and seeing.
People's thought processes
themselves can represent and reinforce particular regimes of power and coercion. Critical
trends in discourse analysis identify the intersection of language and social structure as the locus of critique.
