Sample text

To make an initial distinction between these two related concepts, we can safely begin by assuming that intertextuality refers to the use of prior texts transforming the past into the present, often in relatively conventionalized and somewhat standardized ways. Interdiscursivity, on the other hand, refers to more innovative attempts to create various forms of hybrid and relatively novel constructs by appropriating or exploiting established conventions or resources associated with other genres and professional practices, as indicated in the diagram below.

Therefore, it is more necessary now than ever before to incorporate a theory of contextualisation in addition to that of textualisation. 30 Theoretical Framework Interdiscursive socio-pragmatic vs. discursive space Yet another aspect in which CGA is distinctive is the wider conceptualization of genres to reflect their evolution incorporating the concepts of dynamism, hybridization and innovation. Analysing discourse through a genre-based lens and recognizing dynamism and hybridization as intrinsic properties of genres allows one to harmonize a multimethod approach to studying the textual dynamics of professional genres in their socio-pragmatic space (Bhatia, 2008b), as against analysing texts or discourse in a purely textual and intertextual space.
