LANGUAGE AND POWER: A CRITICAL DISCOURSE ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL SCANDAL OF PAKISTAN

Humaira Sarvat, Dr. Aleem Shakir.

Abstract
This qualitative research critically analyses the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) scandal of Pakistan military published in the newspaper The Nation (2016) within the perspectives of colonial history and postcolonial politics of Pakistan. The study seeks to explore the strategic use of language in this financial scandal by focusing on the relationship between language and power in postcolonial financial discourse of Pakistan. History, politics, and society are deeply connected with the underlying concepts of ideology, power and language in financial scandals. CDA is the most appropriate critical theory for the present study because CD analysts take ‘an explicit sociopolitical stance’ (Dijk, 1993). The study aims to work within the theoretical framework of Wodak’s ‘discourse-historical’ and ‘critical hermeneutic approach’ (2001, 2011). Data has been collected from the English newspaper The Nation (2016). The study expects to find the active colonial legacies of exploitation working strongly in postcolonial financial discourse of Pakistan.

Key words: Colonial history, critical discourse analysis, postcolonial financial discourse, postcolonial politics, language, power and ideology.
