The present volume, originally prepared to celebrate Jan Firbas' 80th
birthday, unfortunately is presented only belatedly, to commemorate
one of the most outstanding personalities of functional and structural
linguistics. Its contributors have been inspired by the richness and
penetrating invention of Firbas, contained in his analysis of
functional sentence perspective and of many other aspects of sentence
and discourse.
