A Relevance-theoretic Approach to Critical Discourse Analysis

Hu Xu-hui;Chen Xin-ren;University of Cambridge;Nanjing University;  
Relevance Theory( RT) can provide a reply to the criticism faced by Critical Discourse Analysis( CDA). Such criticism involves three aspects:( 1) the lack of explanatory power in the process of analysis;( 2) subjectivity of the analysis; and( 3) uncertainty of the result of the analysis. It is argued in this paper that the adoption of RT in CDA can solve the problem of explanatory power,and provide a cognitive account for the issues of subjectivity and uncertainty. The paper also suggests the detailed operations that can be provided by RT in CDA.
