The Introductory Workbook for every Teacher

Linda Gerot and Peter Wignell

This workbook is the most innovative workbook available in
systemic-functional grammar. Designed to be used by teachers and teacher
educators coming to grips with functional grammar, it also is the essential
textbook for introductions to Bachelor or Masters degree level courses.

It answers your questions about functional grammar and genre, how to
describe the language used in your classroom, how to teach about differences
in spoken and written language, how to increase students' awareness of how
language is used, and much more.

ISBN 0 646211 60 9, PB 268p, AUD$24.95 plus freight, trade welcome.


The ContextText Relationship

Linda Gerot

Volume 2 explores whole texts with reference to lexicogrammar, and how
genre, field, tenor, mode and ideology contribute to our understanding of
spoken and written texts. Readers will learn how to apply the grammar to
contrasting texts through the author's analysis of a range of authentic
material from a variety of contexts.

Although it builds on Volume 1, readers new to this kind of grammatical
explanation can still use this volume as an introduction to
systemic-functional grammar. The book will assist any reader's understanding
of the all-important contexttext relationship.

ISBN 0 646241 44 3, PB 152p, AUD$24.95 plus freight, trade welcome.
