Genres and roles (The genre structure of drama discourse revisited)

This study analyzes the peculiarities and genre organization of the drama discourse The text of drama is viewed as a hyper-genre determining conceptual, aesthetic and communicative space in which all the characters act as language personalities. Speech-genre competence of characters or language personalities performing life-like roles (among them professional ones) determines their inclusion in some new hyper-genre. If someone is left out of a communicative situation or is incompetent in the use of a dominant genre of communication, some other personal genre or an intricate combination of several genres prevails. This can also lead to genre lacunas. The research is based on the play “Live Broadcast” by the modern Ukrainian poet and playwriter Aleksandr Irvanets.
