Investigation in Teun Van Djik's theory consists of three dimensions. Those three dimensions are superstructure, macrostructure, and microstructure dimensions. The superstructure dimension is about text consistency and schematization. The macro-structural dimension of Van Dijk's critical discourse analysis of the model discusses the problem: the discussion of the inhabitants of the village of Wadas refusing to mine andesite in their area. The microstructure dimension is background, detail, Intent, premise, sentence form (passive and active clauses), coherence (additive/additive coherence, causal coherence, and contrast coherence), pronouns (they and our pronouns), lexicons, graphics, and metaphors.
