Worlds of Written Discourse : A Genre-Based View Paperback / softback
by Vijay Bhatia
Part of the Bloomsbury Classics in Linguistics series
The tension between the real world of written discourse and its representation in applied genre-based literature is the main theme of this book.
The book addresses 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. Using examples from a range of situations including advertising, business, academia, economics, law, book introductions, reports, media and fundraising, Bhatia uses discourse analysis to move genre theory away from educational contexts and into the real world.
