IGBO LANGUAGE AND CRITICAL DISCOURSE ANALYSIS


Ndubuisi Ogbonna Ahamefula, Udechukwu Chinwe Nwaudu

Abstract


Sentences are uttered in a context of discourse where features of language reveal speakers’ attempt to process their message in view of their hearer’s knowledge and interpretive efforts.  Such contexts constitute a broader perspective, which examines the link between discourse activities and socio-cultural factors.  The task of this paper is to explore some texts in Igbo with a view to establishing what gives its discourse coherence.  It is from this premise that this paper is highly significant. The paper adopts an analytic approach as it x-rays the concept of critical discourse analysis, which has its base on the ten questions against which texts are assessed.
