PEREIRA HENRIQUEZ, Felipe y GONZALEZ HERNANDEZ, Guillermo. Descriptive analysis of language and communication textbooks. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2011, n.24, pp. 161-182. ISSN 0716-5811. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112011000200009.
From a multimodal perspective, this article presents the theoretical principles and the application of a Descriptive Analysis Model for Textbooks (DAMT). The main objective of this model is to describe the relation between verbal and iconic language in textbooks. Regarding theoretical principles, DAMT is built upon five components: structural, identificatory, generic, iconic, and design. Each one of them is focused on different aspects of the textbook, allowing the description from the identification of the sections of this macro-genre to the relation between images and written texts. The process is carried out in two textbooks belonging to 5° and 6° grade of primary school in the area of Lenguaje y Comunicación.
