TRANSDISCIPLINARY CRITICAL DISCOURSE ANALYSIS (TCDA) AS A NEW PERSPECTIVE IN ETHIOPIAN STUDIES [Abstract ID: 0808-08]

ALELIGN Aschale Wudie, Addis Ababa Science and Technology University, Ethiopia

Critical Discourse Analysis has become a breakthrough in many global “textual” studies. In such a time of theoretical and methodological dearth and counterfeiting, Trans-disciplinary Discourse Analysis presents ample options of “textual” research in which Ethiopia has a rich “textual” data and history. The main intention of the researcher in this article is to show how Trans-disciplinary Critical Discourse Analysis (TCDA) can be the best alternative research paradigm. It discussed the paradigms, epistemological roots and the ontologies of TCDA. Besides, it shows the theoretical, conceptual and methodological frameworks of TCDA together with few key tools on how to do TCDA.
