Abstract:

This volume, which represents a major advance on Simon Dik's final
statement of the theory (1997), lays the foundation for the future
evolution of FG towards a Functional Discourse Grammar. It rises to
the double challenge of specifying the interface between discourse and
grammar and of detailing the expression rules that link semantic
representation and morphosyntactic form.

The opening chapter, by Kees Hengeveld, sets out in programmatic form
a new architecture for FG which both preserves the best of the
traditional model and offers a place for numerous recent insights. The
remaining chapters are devoted to refining and developing the
programme laid down by Hengeveld, bringing in data from a range of
languages as well as theoretical insights inspired by adjoining
frameworks. Of special interest are an account by Matthew Anstey of
how current proposals arise from the history of FG and various
chapters in which the model is brought much closer to an account of
real-time language production, notably including the first ever
detailed account of the workings of expression rules, by Dik Bakker
and Anna Siewierska. The final chapter, also by Hengeveld, draws
together the findings of the various chapters, culminating in an
elaborated model that represents the most sophisticated statement of
Functional Grammar currently available.

The volume thus gives a coherent account of FG as a theory which
combines formal explicitness with a broad account of language
functions.
