Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This book provides an introduction to genre analysis from the perspective of the 'Sydney School' of functional linguistics. Chapter 1 introduces our general orientation to genre from the perspective of system and structure, and places genre within our general model of language and social context. Chapters 2-5 deal with five major families of genres (stories, histories, reports, explanations and procedures), introducing a range of descriptive tools and theoretical developments along the way. Finally in Chapter 6 we deal with a range of issues arising for genre analysis in a model of this kind. The book has been written for a readership of functional linguists, discourse analysts and educational linguists, including their post-graduate and advanced undergraduate students. J R Martin is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Sydney. His research interests include systemic theory, functional grammar, discourse semantics, register, genre, multimodality and critical discourse analysis, focussing on English and Tagalog - with special reference to the transdisciplinary fields of educational linguistics and social semiotics. David Rose is a Research Fellow with the University of Sydney, currently coordinating a national research program in language and literacy for Indigenous Australians. This project, Learning to Read: Reading to Learn, works with schools across Australia, as well as Indigenous teacher training programs in University of Sydney and University of South Australia. Table of contents: Preface; Getting going with genre; Stories; Histories; Reports and explanations; Procedures and procedural recounts; Keeping going with genre.
