This refreshed and revised 30th anniversary edition of a PETAA classic investigates how different genres of text work to achieve their purposes. We venture beyond the surface, into the structure and language features of different genres, and explore how they make meaning. Our quest is to find useful ways of talking about language in the classroom and to use this common understanding to compose effective texts.
