Revision crítica del concepto de género en el discurso escrito y su aplicación didáctica a la enseñanza de las lenguas con propósitos específicos. Critical Review of the Genre Concept in Written Discourse and its Pedagogical Application to Language Teaching for Specific Purposes
This paper provides a theoretical review of how the concept of academic and professional discursive genres has evolved, from a linguistic perspective when it first emerged to its current sociocognitive perspective. The stage it has reached is due to intertextuality and interdiscursivity processes caused by the contact between different disciplines. Similarly, the paper discusses some of the most current didactic recommendations on genre teaching proposed by the languages for specific purposes (lps) approach. The discursive genre has been regularly used in lps since learning how to develop the typical genres of a discourse community is a fundamental requirement to succeed in any specialized profession.
