Abstract:

"This volume is a rich resource for anyone who wishes to find out how
Systemic Functional Linguistics approaches the task of describing language,
or to deepen their understanding of key concepts in SFL and the
relationships between them. The book is no mere dictionary-type list of
entries: there is a consistent and fully-justified emphasis on the central
importance of understanding the place of each item in the overall
architecture of the theory… The book does not attempt to minimise the
inherent complexity and extravagance of language, or the corresponding
complexity and extravagance required in any adequate descriptive or
theoretical account of language; but it establishes clear pathways through
the complexity by shunting in an illuminating way between concise, lucid
explanations of individual terms and impressively panoramic overviews of
the systems in which these terms play a part… This is a book that sets new
standards of coverage, depth and coherence for glossaries of technical
terms in any field."
Geoff Thompson, School of English, University of Liverpool, UK

"A much-needed resource bringing together key terms from the broad
theoretical and descriptive scope of SFL within a single work. Advanced
students who are used to trawling through volumes will find this book
indispensable: each entry provides an up-to-date definition and refers the
reader to core works in SFL for fuller treatment, while the cross
referencing between items will lead to many fruitful hours refreshing
connections and discovering new ones."
Dr Tom Bartlett, Centre for Language and Communication Research Cardiff
University, UK

The field of Systemic Functional Linguistics is a social semiotic approach
to language pioneered by M. A. K. Halliday, which has assumed a central
importance in linguistics in recent years, anchored by a growing body of work.

This book details the key terms, the key thinkers and the key texts in this
field in an approachable, easy to understand and accessible manner. It is
authored by leading names in the field and is aimed at undergraduates and
postgraduates studying linguistics and language studies.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
                            Phonology
