Political Discourse of Jordan: A Critical Discourse Analysis


  •  Hassan Al-Momani    

Abstract

Based on the critical discourse analysis theory, the main purpose of this study is to highlight the social and psychological dimensions of the political discourse of Jordan through analyzing king Abdullah’s address to the American Congress in 2007 from socio-cognitive, socio-ideological, and socio-stylistic perspectives. Additionally, the paper uses the critical discourse analysis theory to examine selected quotations from the king’s address in order to see how the Jordanian political discourse is influenced by the status, ideologies, and attitudes of the congressmen to whom it is directed.
