Kathrin Wenz 5 Online Text Types Abstract: Online text types are of particular interest for text linguistics due to the option to analyze developing discourse traditions and emerging text types and genres. First, this can be observed in formulated guidelines, the netiquette. Second, applying text linguistic theories established before the creation of the world-spanning net of web pages to analyze online text types helps to describe their key characteristics, i.e., hypertextuality, interactivity, fluidity, and multimodality. At the same time, emerging boundaries

Kristin Reinke 4 Television Text Types Abstract: Research on language and communication in television is usually based on classifications of different text types which can differ notably from each other depend- ing on the research focus and cultural context. Years ago, Jost (1997) underlined the fact that the question of text types had not as yet been resolved, and this is still true today since the progression of media communication strategies has even accelerated. In view of the vast number of research fields and approaches, the scope of this article is not to

Rodica Zafiu 13 Register and text type Abstract: This chapter examines the concepts of “register” and “text type” as con- ceived in several theoretical models, signalling some terminological difficulties and certain differences between various research traditions. Two main uses of the concept “register” are distinguished, both illustrating the idea of a language variety in a given communicative situation: register (often called “style”) may be understood either as a variety on the formal‒informal scale or as a variety which corresponds to a specific field. In the

Text Types Matthias Aumüller 1 Definition The notion of text type is an abstract category designed to characterize the main structure of a particular text or one of its parts according to its dominant properties. It is intended to integrate common features of his- torically varying genres (novella, novel, short story, etc.) and thus to reduce the complexity of the many overlapping kinds of texts to distinct textual phenomena. In virtue of narratology’s traditional focus on time, these phenomena are semantic properties that constitute the temporal

The presence of registers is connected with socio- cultural conditions, such as the structure of society, multilingualism, the practice of translation, academic traditions, and technological progress. The legal and the

Knowledge and text types Annely Rothkegel 1 Some basics 1.1. Topics and questions There are two types of knowledge which are relevant for translation: world or domain knowledge referring to the conceptual structure of objects and states of affairs and text knowledge referring to communication patterns of how to convey the selected world knowledge to persons in terms of verb- al means (and/or visual means). With respect to translation purposes text knowledge plays an important role as it is the text which is the real subject of the translation process

Text type and discourse framework1 EDWARD L. SMITH, Jr.1 Abstract The classification of text types frequently involves linking the purpose or function of a discourse with the linguistic features which realize that purpose in the text - a method typically associated with 'functional' theories of linguistics. This paper investigates the ways in which linguistic features realize discourse purpose in the four different types of monologic discourse posited in one functional theory, Longacre 's version of tagmemics. In investigating samples of approximately 1000 words

Jokes äs a text type SALVATORE ATTARDO and JEAN-CHARLES CHABANNE Abstract The authors discuss the opportunity ofandprovide evidencefor the Identifi- cation ofa text type particular to thejoke. They present a sei offeatures shared by alljokes, which can be taken äs the basisfor the construction of a definition of "joke." They then show thatjokes satisfy all seven textuality requirements, äs presented in an influential definition of "textuality." When we began to write the preface to this issue of HUMOR we both feit that it was necessary to provide some sort of

Text Types and Periods Academical Aesthetics and Poetics In the 19th century, at least three text types of scholarly poetics devel- oped. They illustrate the enormous attention that was paid to poetics by the reading and writing public:1 firstly, an academically and aestheti- cally ambitious, more or less analytical poetics re-emerged shortly after popular philosophy ( Johann Georg Sulzer, Johann August Eberhard, Jo- hann Jacob Engel) and Immanuel
