This book presents a perspective on genre based on what it is that leads users of a language to recognise a communicative event as an instance of a particular genre. Key notions in this perspective are those of prototype, inheritance, and intertextuality; that is, the extent to which a text is typical of the particular genre, the qualities or properties that are inherited from other instances of the communicative event, and the ways in which a text is influenced by other texts of a similar kind. The texts which form the basis of this discussion are drawn from experimental research reporting in English.

“This book is obligatory reading for anyone interested in the study of genre.”
“A principle strength of this volume is its combined use of two language theories — systemic functional linguistics and frame semantics — to illuminate the great complexity of texts within genre categories.”
