Genre in Language, Discourse and Cognition
Ed. by Stukker, Ninke / Spooren, Wilbert / Steen, Gerard
Aims and Scope
The study of genre is scattered across research disciplines. This volume offers an integrative perspective starting from the assumption that genres are cognitive constructs, recognized, maintained and employed by members of a given discourse community. Its central questions are: What does genre knowledge consist of? How is it organized in cognition? How is it applied in discourse production and interpretation? How is it reflected in language use?
