Much of our discourse, especially when we speak as members of groups, expresses ideologically based opinions. This paper discusses some principles of critical discourse analysis, such as the explicit sociopolitical stance of discourse analysts, and a focus on dominance relations by elite groups and institutions as they are being enacted, legitimated or otherwise reproduced by text and talk.

Ideology as a system of beliefs As we already see in Destutt de Tracy's writings, ideologies have something to do with systems of ideas, and especially with the social, political or religious ideas shared by a social group or movement. They do of course overlap: Discourse for instance is part of society, and so are the socially shared ideas of group members.

This negative notion of 'ideology' has also become the central element in the commonsense and political uses of the term, namely as a system of false, misguided or misleading beliefs.
