Title: The Wedding Report: A Prototypical Approach to the Study of Traditional Text Types
Written By: Hans-Jurg Suter
Description:

The 'wedding report' is a conventional type of news report published in local English newspapers. Treating these reports as a representative or prototypical genre, Suter analyzes, both diachronically and synchronically the distinctive contextual and textual features -- situational context, text production processes, function, thematic structures, and form on the macro- and microlevel -- of this type of text. The linguistic findings are integrated into a comprehensive view of the interplay between the genre as a linguistic frame and its sociocultural context.
