By Giovanni Parodi

This quantity bargains an outline and a deep exam of discourse genres throughout 4 disciplines (Psychology, Social paintings, commercial Chemistry, and development Engineering), in educational settings.

Twelve chapters variety from the theoretical guiding ideas of the study by way of style perception, the special description of every corpus (academic and professional), computational research from multi-dimensional views, and the qualitative research of 2 really good genres (University Textbook and Disciplinary Text) when it comes to their rhetorical macro-moves and strikes. Theoretically talking, a multi-dimensional viewpoint (social, linguistic and cognitive) is emphasised and distinctive awareness to the cognitive nature of discourse genres is supported.

Sample text

1. A multi-dimensional genre identification It is worth noting that this chapter does not discuss the concept of genre or focus on its definition. We follow the principles developed by Parodi in Chapter 2 of this book. Therefore, the focus is placed on the discussion of the criteria under analysis and the variables involved in order to achieve in-depth genre classification. Classically, in order to classify the objects under study, text typologies or discourse genre classifications have emphasised dichotomist perspectives around categorical distinctions, based on discrete criteria.

This theoretical assumption is empirically investigated in some of the following chapters of this volume and is also supported with findings across disciplines (see Chapters 4 and 5). Until very recently, the conception of academic discourse was typically envisaged as a group of unified genres, specifically from language teaching domains. My Written discourse genres point of view regarding this issue is that some of these discourse genres may vary greatly over disciplines and even within a discipline (Bhatia 1993, 2004; Parodi 2005a, 2007a, b, 2008b; Ibáñez 2008; Parodi & Ibáñez 2008).

As accurately stated by Bathia (2004), genres move across disciplines, although it is logically possible that there is heterogeneity within a genre, as is the case from one discipline to another. The existence of groups of genres, of systems of genres (Bazerman 1994; Martin & Rose 2008; Tardy 2003), of colonies of genres (Bhatia 2004), and of macro-genres (Martin 1992) partly serves to demonstrate this assertion. Discourse genres may thus move across both academic discourse and professional discourse, within one or several disciplines.
