In this paper, Kayla uses Rhetorical Genre Theory to give an extended definition of the term “genre.” She uses that theory as the basis of an argument for the misrepresentation of the term “genre” within the general public, and why it is important for writers to have an accurate and complex understanding of what genres really are. She uses difficult, scholarly texts to support her claims about genre, and uses a high level of critical thinking to make a complex definition of genre. What is the argument she is actually making? Why is an extended definition considered an argument? What makes this such a complex argument?
