Interpersonal metafunction: a glimpse into the research article genre

This article aims to systematize ideas about the interpersonal metafunction (HALLIDAY, 1994) in the academic article. Thus, we performed a comprehensive analysis of an example of the academic article from the Linguistic field, establishing a parameter between the rhetorical organization of gender and the use of lexico-grammatical sources related to interpersonal metafunction. The results seem to provide a glimpse on how writers may construct their stance in a prototypical example of the genre from the field in study.
