Abstract:

This book is the first comprehensive presentation of Functional Discourse
Grammar, a new and important theory of language structure. The authors set
out its nature and origins and show how it relates to contemporary
linguistic theory. They demonstrate and test its explanatory power and
descriptive utility against linguistic facts from over 150 languages across
a wide range of linguistic families.

After a full introduction the book is divided into chapters concerned with
the four levels of grammatical representation - pragmatic, semantic,
morphosyntactic, and phonological - each of which has its own hierarchical
structure. Functional Discourse Grammar offers a thorough account of how
the use and meaning of language influence linguistic form by conditioning
two levels of formulation which feed into two levels of encoding, all with
their own specific characteristics. The book offers an ideal introduction
to the theory and its applications in typology and description for scholars
in linguistics and related fields from graduate students upwards.
