Critical Discourse Analysis of President Hamid Karzais Speech
Ghazi Mohammad Takal
Abstract: A great deal of studies has been conducted to analyse the speeches of presidents in the world, however, there is a lack of studies as far as the speeches of Afghan presidents are concerned. A critical discourse analysis in terms of modality and transitivity of Systemic Functional Linguistics was employed to analyse the speech of former Afghan president ‘’Hamid Karzai”. The results revealed that the president predominantly used material processes, modal auxiliaries, and simple present tense in his speech which show that the president mostly talked about actions, events which are present in the current time.
