Genres As Text Types

As text types, genres are registers,
viewed from the instance pole of the cline of instantiation,

but they are registers that vary with
the mode* features (textual metafunction)
of the situation type (context)
that they realise as language (not context)


*Mode: the part language plays in any given context
