About the Summer School:

Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) is an increasingly popular framework for understanding and analysing language in use. At the very foundation of SFL is the view of language as a social function. As Halliday states, the internal organization of language is not arbitrary but embodies a positive reflection of the functions that language has evolved to serve in the life of social man (1970:26). The functions of language include both the functions that language serves (i.e. how people use language) and linguistic functions (i.e. the grammatical and semantic roles assigned to parts of language). It is this focus on the functions of language that has lead to the successful application of SFL in areas such as language teaching, literacy, computational approaches to language, counselling, research in language and communication and many more. The goal of the summer school is to offer research training in both understanding the SFL theory of language and applying it to real-world challenges.


Registration fee is £105 for the full three days. There are a limited number of places available so please book early. The summer school will only run if the minimum number of places are filled. The registration form is now available from the menu in the top right section of this page.

Breakfast will be available but not included in the cost of the accommodation.
