Swales did a very good at explain what a discourse community was by
using complex words and content to elaborate on his beliefs. While
reading I had to break down certain sections of the text to fully
understand what he was saying, For Example he says,
"Irrespective of the merits of this 'cluster of ideas', the cluster is, I
suggest, consequential of the assumption that there are indeed entities
identifiable as discourse communities, not criteria/ for establishing
or identifying them."
"Irrespective of the merits" meaning No regards to the specific claim of ideas can conclude(consequential) that specific things can be identify(indeed entities
identifiable) to describe a discourse community. Not having a certain way of teaching how they are.
Although Swales text was a little hard to read, the details used to describe the discourse community such as breaking what he felt down into sections and accurately describing them.
