Title: Genre Relations
Subtitle: Mapping Culture
Written By: JamesR.Martin
Series Title: Equinox Textbooks and Surveys in Linguistics
Description:

This book provides an introduction to genre analysis from the perspective
of the 'Sydney School' of functional linguistics. Chapter 1 introduces our
general orientation to genre from the perspective of system and structure,
and places genre within our general model of language and social context.
Chapters 2-5 deal with five major families of genres (stories, histories,
reports, explanations and procedures), introducing a range of descriptive
tools and theoretical developments along the way. Finally in Chapter 6 we
deal with a range of issues arising for genre analysis in a model of this
kind. The book has been written for a readership of functional linguists,
discourse analysts and educational linguists, including their post-graduate
and advanced undergraduate students.
