A locutionary act includes a proposition about a certain thing. A illocutionary act is the act the listener is intended to do. An perlocutionary act is how the listener takes what the person said and they interpret it wrong from what they meant. For example my mom and I were running errands last week and I told her “I am hungry”, which would be a locutionary act. I was expecting her to go through a drive thru restaurant since I told her I was hungry, which would be an example of illocutionary act. But instead of her driving to a restaurant she drove back home, for me to make food. Her driving home instead is an example of perlocutionary act since interpreted it wrong.
A genre set are collections of texts a certain work professional would use. A genre system are several genre sets a group of people working together would use. And system of activity helps people with what they’re doing and how the texts helps them to do it. A genre system creates a system of activity because it could give the working people things to do or create things for them to do. For example an essay prompt would give the student activity, such as writing the essay. Another example would be public school teachers, they are given a curricular by the state that they need to teach and cover in one school year. The genres would include; lesson plans, tests, exams, group activities, homework, etc. This would create activity because the students would have to actively pay attention and do the work.
In major assignment one I would use the passage “Basic Concepts”, because this passage talks a lot about genres, genre sets, and genre systems. Which I can incorporate into the assignment since it does talk about genres. I think that reading would work very well into my essay.
