Abstract:

This collection presents a number of studies in the lexico-grammar of
English which focus on the one hand on close reading of language in context
and on the other hand on current functional theoretical concerns. The
various contributions represent distinct functionalist models of language,
including Functional Grammar and Functional Discourse Grammar,
Systemic-Functional Grammar, Role and Reference Grammar, Cognitive Grammar
and Construction Grammar. Taken together, however, they typify current work
being conducted from the grammatical perspective within the functionalist
enterprise, emphasizing on the relation between structure and usage. A
fundamental goal of the enterprise is to identify linguistic structures
which are constrained by specific features of use, or which actually encode
specific features of use, as many of the contributions here show.

Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories
