Analysing Genre by V.K. Bhatia
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Drawing extensively on empirical research and theoretical work in linguistics, pragmatics and psychology, this series explores key issues in language acquisition and language use. Although genre analysis has a long-established tradition in literature, the interest in the analysis of non-literary genres has been very recent. By examining the theory of genre analysis; genre analysis in action and the use of genre in language teaching and language reform; this book provides a comprehensive introduction to a relatively new and unexplored area of discourse studies. It focuses on providing answers to the key question in discourse studies, "why is a particular genre written in the way it is?" The book also features discussions of cross-cultural variation in many academic and professional settings, using examples from a wide range of non-native context. It is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students and teachers interested in applied discourse analysis. It is suitable for language, linguistics and applied linguistics courses.
