This study is a critical discourse analysis of soldiers-corps members’ language interaction on NYSC camp. The study sets out to examine and document the nature of the conversation between soldiers and corps members on camp, and to demonstrate that power is linked to language in the utterance of soldiers to corps members on camp. The data used for the analysis are the conversational exchanges between soldiers and corps members as recorded during orientation camps in Kaduna and Abuja camps respectively. The analysis employed the Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) framework. Specifically the Fairclough (1989) model of analysis was used. Fairclough’s model of CDA has three components: description, interpretation and explanation. These three components were the analytical procedure employed to explicate the different contexts in which the relationship between soldiers and corps members on camp is laced with unequal power. The study found out that Critical Discourse Analysis is an interdisciplinary area of study which encapsulates other linguistic studies such as Pragmatics, Semantics, Sociolinguistics, Phonology and Grammar.
