Example text

The framework outlined intended to capture, on the one hand, my conception of discourse as a wide-ranging phenomenon and, on the other, the concrete nature of text as a linguistic unit in which language is visible and linguistic features are captured. At the same time, the framework outlined in Figure 8 aims to envisage the place and role of genres as an intermediate layer between discourse and texts. In addition, disciplinarity is highlighted as a relevant issue in this integral conception of discourse, genres and texts.

Genres are created through a series of social interaction mechanisms and these enable the construction of discourse practices. However, genres are built and rebuilt by means of cognitive and linguistic constructs that are complexly formed together. In summary, the discourse context of genres is based on knowledge that is fundamentally of a cognitive nature, and thus the subject and his/her memory of previous events constructed in specific settings and interactions provide continuity and stabilisation to the genre construct.

According to Swales (1990) and Bhatia (1993, 2004), discourse communities exist and support themselves by means of a dynamic membership in terms of expertise. This is due to the fact that the members composing these, in most cases, enter the community as novices and gradually become experts as a result of their discursive interaction in the community. Thus, the roles of speech (Halliday & Hasan 1976; Halliday 2004a) which persons can adopt in a communicative exchange as speaker/writer and hearer/reader are projected in a discourse community as roles determined by the participants’ degree of expertise.
