Title: Expository Discourse
Subtitle: A Genre-Based Approach to Social Science Research Texts
Written By: Beverly A. Lewin
Jonathan Fine
Lynne Young
Description:

This volume provides a detailed and explicit account of the genre of social
science research articles. While previous literature has analysed some
aspects of the research genre separately, this book presents a
comprehensive model which characterizes the generic, registerial and
discoursal options as they interweave within a text. Another important
contribution to the analysis is the formulation of explicit realization
statements that relate the abstract categories of move and act (as
described by Swales) to the way these units are actually created by lexical
and grammatical choices. The realization networks draw on the work of
systemic functional linguists, primarily Halliday, Hasan, Martin and
Ventola. The added emphasis in this study is that research texts are
ultimately persuasive texts, and genre 'constraints' can be tightened or
loosened in response to the rhetorical dimension.
