Abstract /

The hob of a copy editor is rarely limited to applying the criteria of idiomatic correction. When a text has been poorly focalized by its author, the copy editor should adopt a dynamic approach to first recover the text´s truest sense and then proceed to rewrite it coherently and cohesively. Therefore, a "dialogic recption" together with a "dialogic creation" constitutes the key binomial that allows the copy editor to monitor the syntactic, morphologic, lexical, and semantic changes that are performed in a "clear text", in order to transform it into a "coherent discourse", pragmatically appropriate for the purposes it pursues.
