Language, discourse and ideology are part of a fascinating debatein social sciences that goes beyond the entire cognitive system.However, all the three are interrelated and shape the social structure.Yet the disciplines of social sciences since long have tried to identifyhow thoughts and ideas come into existence and how correct they arein capturing the reality of the outside word. Inquiry of relationshipbetween language, discourse and ideology needs multidimensionalperspectives. Though, dominant ideology determines the use oflanguage, but it certainly cannot end the possibilities inherent in thelanguage systems to produce the contradictions of dominant ideologyand then subsequently replace it or change it. Ideology is overarchingterm, discourse is part of it. Language thus is a multidimensionalaspect but partially neutral. It is because of this character thatlanguage makes discourse and ideology a possibility. In this paper,the author attempts to identify the relationship between languagediscourse and ideology by analyzing and comparing their denotativeand connotative meanings.
