Institute for the Languages of Finland


Genres are essential in all language use and human interaction. The Institute for the Languages of Finland aims to gather information on genres and bring together researchers from different fields to discuss this socially central theme. The practical applications of genre analysis include improving legal language and official texts. Genre analysis is also useful in language planning and increasing general language awareness.
