Genre analysis has become firmly established as one of the most popular
frameworks for the study of specialized genres in academic, professional
and institutional as well as other workplace contexts. In recent years,
genre theory has also developed in the direction of a more comprehensive
and powerful multidimensional and multi-perspectived framework to examine
not only the text but also the context in a much more meaningful manner
than had ever been done earlier.

The theoretical perspectives and the individual case studies of this volume
testify to the wide range of methodological tools made available by genre
theory, enabling researchers to handle problems relating to the description
of variations in language use. Moreover, the following relevant issues are
addressed: how are specialized genres constructed, interpreted and
exploited in the achievement of specific goals in highly specialized contexts?
