Abstract:

This engaging textbook bridges the gap between traditional and functionalgrammar. Starting with a traditional approach, students will develop a firmgrasp of traditional tools for analysis and learn how SFG (SystemicFunctional Grammar) can be used to enrich the traditional formal approach.

Using a problem-solving approach, readers explore how grammaticalstructures function in different contexts by using a wide variety ofthought-provoking and motivating texts including advertisements, cartoons,phone calls and chatroom dialogue. Each chapter focuses on a real worldissue or problem that can be investigated linguistically, such as"mis"-translation or problems arising from a communication disorder. Byworking on these problems, students will become equipped to understand andanalyze formal and functional grammar in different genres and styles.

With usable and accessible activities throughout, Exploring English Grammaris ideal for upper undergraduate and postgraduate students of Englishlanguage and linguistics.
