The author first studies the different theoretical bases on which the classification of texts is based. He recommends the domain or “social context” as a preponderant criterion. The author treats the methods for the analysis of texts by taking into account certain linguistic theories. Finally, the importance of textual analysis in the pedagogic of translation is underlined. The examples in this paper are from Arabic/English translations.
