Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) is interdisciplinary as it deals with issues across disciplines and its methodology is not confined to a single subject. However, linguistics undoubtedly plays a key role in the development of CDA. The contribution of linguistics to CDA is essential as many concepts and insights are derived from different branches of linguistics such as sociolinguistics, pragmatics, and psycholinguistics. CDA is often seen by linguists as a component of linguistics. Thus, it is important to examine how linguistics contributes to CDA, conceptually and methodologically.
