In this paper, our central point is to discuss how linguistic forms and construction, as referential tools, can contribute to the study of textual genres, as defined under the ISD framework. Two different newspaper articles are analysed: one labelled as "opinion", and the second considered a "commentary" by the newspaper editors, both selected from the same newspaper. Our discussion will be focused on the explanation of semantic referential values, following the proposals of TFE framework (cf. CULIOLI 1990, 1999). For this discussion, some theoretical concepts are crucial, such as pre-constructed, notional domain or nominal and verbal determination.
