Worlds of Written Discourse: A Genre-Based View
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungGenre theory in the past few years has contributed immensely to our understanding of the way discourse is used in academic, professional and institutional contexts. However, its development has been constrained by the nature and design of its applications, which have invariably focused on language teaching and learning, or communication training and consultation. This has led to the use of simplified and idealised genres. In contrast to this, the real world of discourse is complex, dynamic and unpredictable. This tension between the real world of written discourse and its representation in applied genre-based literature is the main theme of this book.
PortraitVijay Bhatia is a professor in the Department of English at City University of Hong Kong.
PressestimmenThe book is a brilliant contribution to the study of genre analysis. It establishes a comprehensive methodology for further research in the field. Bhatia proves once again his expertise in elaborating a multidimensional approach for analysis of the intricacies of academic, professional and institutional discourse and offers new perspectives and insights of how the real world of written discourse is represented by the generic structuring of texts.
