CDA OF BALOCHISTAN NEWSPAPERS HEADLINES - A STUDY OF NAWABS’ STEREOTYPED IDEOLOGICAL CONSTRUCTIONS
he aim of this study is to assess and investigate the use of
language critically, by renowned personality in Balochistan, the
province chief minister Nawab Sana Ullah Zahari, in
accordance with the social settings portraits, giving the glimpses
of stereotyped ideological constructions there. The purpose of
this study is to unveil the basic hidden ideologies and identities
in nawabs’ language which are also major political figures in
Balochistan, through Critical Discourse Analysis by using
statements given in newspapers headlines, which are believed
too by the poor public of Balochistan as architect of their destiny
and survival. Secondly, it is also endeavored to teach and
develop understanding of Critical Discourse Analysis among
English language students and teachers in Balochistan. Thirdly,
this is to communicate to the poor public of Balochistan that
Baloch nawabs are not creators of their destiny and survival but
are actually striving for their own excellence and profligacy.
The basic framework of this study is established on Critical
Discourse Analysis given by Norman Fairclough (2015) theory
using its tools, e.g. description, interpretation and explanation.
The headlines are selected and analyzed, are only the statements
of CM, for scrutinizing veiled ideologies through power of
discourse in media. Therefore, CDA plays very important role
for the unraveling of such stereotyped ideological constructions,
like those of the Nawabs of Balochistan
