    Abstract

    Hyland’s definition of genres as ‘abstract, socially recognised ways of using language’ is general enough to be widely acceptable, but as such it masks significant differences in how genres are more specifically defined and operationalised in research and teaching contexts. This chapter explains what we mean by academic genres, and how we classify genres of assessed student writing into groups of similar genres, called genre families.
