CIAPUSCIO, Guiomar. The concept of genre in Systemic Functional Linguistics and Text Linguistics. Rev. signos [online]. 2005, vol.38, n.57, pp.31-48. ISSN 0718-0934.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-09342005000100003.

This article presents a general critical review of the concept of genre in two contemporary perspectives in linguistics characterized by their theoretical and empirical contributions to the field: Systemic Functional Linguistics and Text Linguistics. The concept of genre is fundamental to current linguistics, while it also represents an important challenge to diverse theoretical perspectives due to its intrinsically complex nature. Even if the different theoretical frameworks discuss the issue of genre, it is rare to find an "interschool dialogue" that would draw distinctions, make comparisons and arrive to conclusions that may enlarge our knowledge in this field. The paper is divided in two sections: the first compares and summarizes the main coincidences and differences referred to epistemological origins and general theoretical principles of Systemic Functional Linguistics and Text Linguistics. The second explores the concept of genre in both, based on the analysis of representative examples. The main purpose of this comparison is to advance some conclusions that may illuminate the theoretical and empirical elements privileged by both schools, and to attempt an explanation of the reasons that guide such preferences.

Palabras clave : Genre; text typologies; systemic functional linguistics; textual linguistics.
