Do-It-Yourself discourse (DIY discourse) is communication aimed at teaching laymen to do professional processes and exchanging experiences in professional spheres. It is a very called-for tool for non-vocational training. DIY discourse comprises non-verbal, verbal, and polycode texts. In this research we analyzed general characteristics of DIY discourse. On the first stage of our research we selected articles from www.wikihow.com that teach the lay audience how to do different things. On the second stage of the research we analyzed genres that occur in the computer-mediated environment and polycode texts that represent the computer-mediated communication (CMC) in the DIY discourse. From a semiotic point of view, non-verbal texts are an emblem of a professional process, verbal texts provide a symbol side, and polycode texts combine an emblem and a symbol. We have found out that DIY discourse comprises several genres with different semiotic codes. It can have non-verbal, verbal and polycode format. We have come to the conclusion that polycode texts are the specific feature of computer-mediated communication. They are widely employed in DIY discourse to achieve a more profound comprehension of the professional processes.
