1. Overview: Perspectives on Discourse 2. The World of Reality 3. The World of Private Intentions 4. The World of Analysis 5. The World of Applications
This volume extends the scope and coverage of genre theory, giving more emphasis to what is known as pragmatic space; in other words it integrates the study of discourse at the textual level with the study of how that discourse operates in its social context.
Addresses genre theory this theme from the perspectives of four rather different worlds: the world of reality, the world of private intentions, the world of analysis and the world of applications.
