Sociolinguistics


Demanding text: when is quite specific, technical. When it has different functions, metaphorical.
Implicit meaning: when something is not explicitly said.

First level of analysis: language → linguistic level → understanding a text.
Another level is higher → critical approach
Critical discourse analysis tries to envoy every text considering a text as a project.

                                                        Old lady
                                                        They’re nouns

The author is influencing the reader simply using the three words.
In a critical approach we can ask: why?
Terrorist or freedom fighter: is different according to the place
Language is never neutral
