عنوان مقاله [English]
The present paper, by taking advantage of van Dijk’s pattern (1988) with an aim of presenting the theory of relationship between discourse and ideology, intends to show that how Muslims and the whites as the social groups are visualized in discourse and how ideological discourse takes shape as an instrument for the approval of the domination of one group over the other. Simultaneously, this study uses the critical discourse analysis (CDA) as a methodology. The purpose of the critical discourse analysis is to reveal the relationship of the hidden power and ideological processes existing in the linguistic texts and in this research the linguistic syntax and the terminology have been used for the analysis of the text. The samples have been selected from the two Guardian and Daily Express from Britain and the two Time Magazine and the Newsweek from the US in a period Sept. 12, 2001 up to March 11, 2002. The result of the research show that representation of the “insider groups” has been in line with positive presentation of “self” and representation of the “non-insider groups” in line with negative presentation of the “others”.
