 Abstract:
 
 This book is intended as a systemic functional contribution to language typology 
 both for those who would like to understand and describe particular languages 
 against the background of generalizations about a wide range of languages and 
 also for those who would like to develop typological accounts that are based on 
 and embody descriptions of the systems of particular languages (rather than 
 isolated constructions). The book is a unique contribution in at least two respects.
 On the one hand, it is the first book based on systemic functional theory that is 
 specifically concerned with language typology. On the other hand, the book 
 combines the particular with the general in the description of languages: it 
 presents comparable sketches of particular languages while at the same time 
 identifying generalizations based on the languages described here as well as on 
 other languages.
 
 The volume explores eight languages, covering seven language families:
 French, German, Pitjantjatjara, Tagalog, Telugu, Vietnamese, Chinese, and
 Japanese.
