Crucial Readings in Functional Grammar will be an invaluable resource to
anyone working in Functional Grammar, student and scholar alike. It
contains important articles that have led to new avenues of research in the
theory beyond Dik's two-volume Functional Grammar (1997), each concluded
with a short paragraph with suggestions for further research. The book also
contains an introduction to current Functional Grammar theory by the
editors. Crucial Readings will be of much assistance both in bringing
together in one volume the various ideas that complement Dik's canonical
presentation of the theory and in the editorial contributions that provide
a comprehensive review of Functional Grammar publications.
