The book includes an overview of the applications of functional grammar to
show the practical importance of linguistic theory and analysis in relation
to issues in education and society. It finishes by explaining the place of
Halliday and his school in the history of linguistics. It can be used

Introduction to Functional Grammar'. Linguistic terms are clearly explained
and illustrated with authentic examples from a wide variety of sources
including scientific and technical texts. 'The Functional Analysis of
English' will be suitable for anyone approaching Hallidayan linguistics for
