Thus, genre knowledge, which is both socially and individually constructed, is stored in the form of cognitive representations. From this point of view, these representations will be activated and will be materialised in specific texts, within social and cultural contexts, according to the nature of each particular communicative event. Moving deeper into this perspective, an integral conception of genre is offered herein without making any distinction between social genres and cognitive genres (Bruce 2008) or between more social and other more linguistic or cognitive alternative variants (van Dijk 2008).

A communicative purpose is conceived as the ultimate objective for which a discourse genre is used in a communicative exchange. Since a great part of the genres that make up our corpora are known to possess not only a general communicative purpose, but also a set or group of minor communicative purposes from which the general purpose is shaped, we identify this general purpose as Communicative Macro-purpose (see Chapter 8). The macro-purposes identified in this study are: – – – – – – – – Discourse genres in the PUCV-2006 To instruct about a specific disciplinary matter.

Are they unique units of analysis created by some radical empirical researcher? Can academic literacy or teaching programmes be feasibly guided by genre theory? That is to say, are genres “teachable” or merely “usable”? Most or all of these questions erratically surround genre theory. However, they demonstrate diverse interests, aims, origins and diverse perspectives. The elusive and divergent theoretical conceptions underlying the term genre offer a wide diversity of alternative options. This may undoubtedly confuse and mislead both the novice and the expert.
