Ideological structure (construction) is an abstract and ambiguous basic term in critical discourse analysis researches. This paper is an attempt to reply the research questions such as (1) What is ideological structure? and (2) How is it defined, represented in a text and, finally, analyzed and interpreted by critical discourse analysts? In conclusion, potentially any sentence or utterance can be an ideological structure but in real presentation of a text, only those linguistic forms or structures, which transfer meaning more than its linguistic form in a specific discourse context, are called ideological structure. A critical discourse analysis is able to attend a scientific analysis and interpretation of a text by applying the linguistic and social concepts and strategies as indicated in this paper on a newspaper title.
