Abstract

BONINI, Adair. Communication vehicle and genre: conflicting notions. DELTA [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.1, pp. 65-89. ISSN 0102-4450.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-44502003000100003.

Some textual phenomena that resemble genres (like magazines and newspapers) are commonly conceived as communication vehicles. Taking this subject as a departing point, this article examines the notions of genre and communication vehicles in order to try to determine how both have been approximated at the theoretical level. Following this line of thought, some elements are taken for the re-evaluation of the communicative and enunciative perspectives about genres.

Keywords : Genre; Communication; Enunciation; Cognition.
