This edited collection is about the application of English
grammar and specializes in "functional" and "corpus"
approaches, approaches which are increasingly recognized as
providing significant insights into English language in
action. It aims to stimulate interest and understanding of
grammar as an applied tool not just for grammarians or
language learners, but for all those interested in how
language is organized to shape our view of events in the
world. Chapters comprise both newly commissioned and
previously published works that illustrate the two
methodological approaches to grammatical analysis and how
they can be applied to deepen our understanding of language.
