Abstract:

Grammar and Context:

* considers how grammatical choices influence and are influenced by the
context in which communication takes place

* examines the interaction of a wide variety of contexts - including
socio-cultural, situational and global influences

* with a range of different types of grammar - functional, pedagogic,
descriptive and prescriptive

* explores grammatical features in a lively variety of communicative
contexts, such as advertising, dinner-table talk, email and political speeches

* gathers together influential readings from key names in the discipline,
including: David Crystal, M.A.K. Halliday, Joanna Thornborrow, Ken Hyland
and Stephen Levey

Written by experienced teachers and researchers in the field, Grammar and
Context is an essential resource for students and researchers of Applied
Linguistics.
