This account of the register-genre relationship is markedly different from the account provided by Martin, Rose, and White. The latter describe register as “the expression plane of genre” (borrowing Hjemslev’s terminology), and thus posit an additional stratum in the linguistic system.

The latter describe register as “the expression plane of genre” (borrowing Hjemslev’s terminology), and thus posit an additional stratum in the linguistic system. Where Halliday observes three linguistic strata (semantics, lexico-grammar, and phonology), Martin observes an additional stratum above semantics, which he calls genre (Halliday, “Interview,” 145 n. 12; Martin, “Modelling Context,” 31–34). 67 Of course, in many cases difference will be at least as interesting as sameness. This book deals with one specific text (the book of Joel), and is focused especially upon context of situation, and is therefore an analysis of register, and not of genre (if some distinction must be maintained).
