The ideas of Discourse Communities, Genres, and Rhetoric make sense to me. They’re useful concepts, you see these concepts everyday. Discourse communities are useful to understand how a group of different people come together for similar things/interests and how you can be in many different discourse communities at the same time. There are many different types of genres and different things that go with it. And Rhetoric is used early in life, depends on the situation and the different ways to appeal to your audience. I’ve never really thought about Discourse communities or how it was useful before. I think about Genres and Rhetoric all the time, when I’m picking a movie, when I’m in class, just all the time.
