Example text

The idea behind this open organisation of criteria is that new insights into genre theory may entail challenging possibilities that may produce criteria and variables that can capture genres, and identify and differentiate these in a better manner. The construction of this proposal of identification and classification followed deductive-inductive principles. The deductive step conveyed us “from the already defined types, traditionally established as observable linguistic objects” (De Beaugrande & Dressler 1981: 251) in order to, on this basis, identify and select criteria and variables founded on specialised bibliography.

In this context, the objective of this chapter is to identify, classify and define the emerging discourse genres based on the texts of the PUCV-2006 Corpus of Spanish. In order to identify and define each genre, we will apply a multi-dimensional framework in which a complementary methodology is developed. In the first part of this chapter, we concentrate on a brief revision of fundamental concepts, criteria and variables in order to frame the present study. We then report on the research, with a brief description of the corpora, and we also provide details regarding the methodological procedures.

The academic corpus comprises nearly 100% of the written material consulted by students during their four year university programs: Psychology (PSY), Social Work (SW), Construction Engineering (CE) and Industrial Chemistry (IC). The professional corpus includes some of the texts considered to be fundamental material for dealing with professional duties of individuals who graduated from the aforementioned programmes. In contrast to the aim we had when building the academic corpus, we did not seek to get 100% of the circulating written material, as we know this is unlimited.
