Abstract:

This book shares the recent debates by systemic functional linguistics and
other linguistic forums. Its principal focus is on how we use language to
make meaning of the world, on how the systems and structures of the
ideational function of language represent the realisation of our
experiences of the world around us. The volume captures the endeavours of
scholars working in different contexts, disciplines and languages around
the world. Their contributions explore what underlies experiential and
logical meaning-making through specific analyses of recently-created,
contextually diverse, single texts or collections of texts, from mono- to
multimodal texts. The issues addressed are: layers of meaning through the
transitivity system; agency and subjectivity; what kinds of participants
and circumstances are associated with various processes and how these vary
across languages; new ways of researching and capturing the interaction of
the experiential function with the other functions of language -
interpersonal, textual and logical - in communicative contexts; how
multimodality and new ways of modelling experience semiotically influence
the work of linguists, linguistic description and application. The book
displays the dynamic dialogue on theoretical and applied interests of
scholars interested in functional linguistics and working in a wide range
of academic contexts. At post-graduate level advanced students will benefit
from new perspectives, the innovative thinking and research accounts that
make up the collection. The papers highlight the flexibility of systemic
functional linguistic approach and exemplify how it can offer deeper and
further insights into potential ways of exploring meaning-making by drawing
on recent seminal developments in ideation.
