Meeting Description:

Summer School in Functional Linguistics, University of Copenhagen

Course description:

The Summer School provides an introduction to prevailing theories within
functional linguistics and will illustrate ways in which the theories may be
applied on the one hand to linguistic categories (i.e. providing
intra-linguistic explanations) and on the other to the way language interacts
with context (i.e. providing extra-linguistic explanations). The frameworks to
be presented and discussed are Systemic Functional Linguististics (SFL),
Functional Discourse Grammar (FDG) and Danish Functional Linguistics (DFL). The
participating research students will also have the opportunity to discuss their
own projects in relation to functional paradigms.
