Abstract:

Introducing Functional Grammar, third edition, provides a user-friendly overview of the theoretical and practical aspects of the systemic functional grammar (SFG) model.

No prior knowledge of formal linguistics is required as the book provides: An opening chapter on the purpose of linguistic analysis, which outlines the differences between the two major approaches to grammar - functional and formal; An overview of the SFG model - what it is and how it works; Advice and practice on identifying elements of language structure such as clauses and clause constituents; Numerous examples of text analysis using the categories introduced, and discussion about what the analysis shows; Exercises to test comprehension, along with answers for guidance.

Introducing Functional Grammar remains the essential entry guide to Hallidayan functional grammar, for undergraduate and postgraduate students of language and linguistics.
