Resumen

LOPEZ, Carmen. Marks of the subject and marks of argumentation in three different genres in spanish. Rev. signos [online]. 2006, vol.39, n.61, pp.205-229. ISSN 0718-0934.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-09342006000200004.

In this paper we study grammatical features relevant in Spanish from a functional point of view, to the extent that they can be associated with semantic and pragmatic functions of discourse (Halliday, 1994; Biber, Conrad & Reppen, 1998). Specifically, we analyse the occurrence of grammatical features associated with two textual characteristics, subjectivity and argumentation, in three discourse genres: didactic genres (school book, professional school manual, etc.), popularized genres (popularized article, popularized book, review, etc.), and behaviour-regulating genres (contract, agreement, law, etc.). In this research we study texts included in the corpus of the Royal Academy of Spanish Language (RAE), available in Internet, in order to obtain and to quantify automatically the features observed. The results show differences in grammatical characteristics of each discourse genres, both from a quantitative perspective and a qualitative one, in other words, the grammatical units observed are used in combinations with other linguistic elements characteristic of each specific text form.

Palabras clave : Discourse genres; grammatical features; Spanish langua.
