What is the Meaning & Definition of text

A text is a composition of signs encoded through a system of writing, as it can be the alphabet that goes from A to Z and that all human beings, mostly know and use, regularly, to communicate between us and which must have a unit of sense so that it can be decoded first and then understood by the reader. Therefore recognized the importance of the process of encoding in the context of the texts.
In the meantime, you can call also text both a literary as to a text message; This means that text is any compound signs that matches what you mentioned above regardless of its size or extension. Also, in the current context of the diffusion of digital media, the conception of text is also addressed to a specific type of document, in which it is possible to disseminate content written, with the possibility of extension to images, tables, graphics, algorithms, and a large number of supplements that exceed the single organization of conventional language. Similarly, the definition of text is extended to almost informal communication that arises from the chat and, above all, systems of social networks, which present prior coding, in terms of the reduction in the quantities of characters.
In addition, the concept of text is closely linked to other speech, because that is the generation of a text by an issuer in a given context, with a concrete communicative intention, latter being also the function par excellence of the text. There can never be a speech without a text, that is, final account, what motivates the discourse: have something to say. Many linguists now say that the powerful integration of audiovisual tools is a strong reason to establish today a division between speech and text, with the argument that it is possible to emit a true discourse with the full tools of visual broadcasting Guide. However, not all experts are in agreement, because the use of multimedia elements is considered as a true language independent, derived from the traditional language and which deserves a separate focus by semiology.
Another important feature to understand and deepen further with regard to the scope of a text, is that this can be monologal, for example a speech or a novel, or it may involve more than one recipient; This may be the case of a conversation between two or more people via chat or that maintain physically and face several people in a bar. He is prefers to speak of dialogue to Exchange expressions of text between two individuals and Symposium when it comes to one larger number. On the other hand, teleconferences are now a formidable for the dissemination of texts tool, given that achieved a notable interaction between the issuers and the numerous receptors, located sometimes at great distances from the speaker.
A text that boasts of such and made good must meet certain conditions called conditions of textuality, these are: cohesion, coherence, meaning, escalation, intentionality and closing. If a text does not keep any of these, then, surely, there will be a problem in terms of understanding of what you want to expose. This analysis is debated among sociologists, since involves, ultimately, an error in the coding that must be done to assess the actual ubiquity of the issuer.
As a result of the significant diversity of texts that exists, has not been one that categorized them according to the role or its internal structure. So that we can find texts in which predominate the narrative, argumentative, commutative and descriptive characteristics. Works of art (narrative) at the same time have been divided into prose, poetry, epic genres and dramaturgy. On the other hand, scientific texts constitute a particular variation, with transmitters defined and receivers able to decode the particular language of these content contextualized.
