 Abstract:
 
 This is the second edition of An Introduction to Systemic Functional
 Linguistics first published in 1994. 
 
 The book offers a comprehensive overview of systemic theory and
 demonstrates how systemic techniques can be applied in the analysis of
 texts. Written for students who have little or no formal knowledge of
 linguistics, it covers the major concepts in systemic linguistics including
 semiotic systems, genre, register, text, cohesion and grammatical metaphor. 
 
 Using the influential work of M. A. K. Halliday as a foundation, the book
 also presents a functional grammatical description of the simultaneous
 metafunctional organisation of the clause; its Mood, Transitivity, Theme
 and Clause Complex systems. The basic techniques for analysing cohesive
 patterns in text, such as reference, lexical cohesion and conjunction, are
 also introduced. 
 
 The new edition has been fully updated and includes two new chapters on
 clause systems and the analysis of what constitutes a text. The new edition
 has also been enlarged and has improved chapter breakdowns  to help
 students to navigate the book. Lists of texts, systems, figures and tables
 have also been added, to enable the reader to access examples easily. This
 comprehensive book is an invaluable resource for students who are new to
 systemic functional linguistics.
