Since "descripted" is a traditional term for "described" (used in legal circles for legally-binding documents and instruments), it seems logical to me that "descripted discourse" is probably communication or linguistics that have been described and annotated, according to certain parameters for the purpose of "discourse analysis." (See Wikipedia definition and branches of the science of discourse analysis.) It stands to reason that before an analyst can study communication and linguistic patterns, those patterns and methods of discourse must be described. Of course, no scientist worth her/his salt would merely say their experiment described the conversation between two people in order to study the patterns -- the term would be scientifically descripted discourse. Just a guess, but it sounds good, doesn't it?
