This chapter starts with the examination of the origins and the polysemic nature of ideology. Next, we will provide a historical overview of the history of the concept and its relation to the concept of discourse. In the second part of the overview, we will give examples of the ways in which ideology has been used in recent research within discourse studies, sociolinguistics, and linguistic anthropology.
