Title: The Functional Analysis of English, Second edition
Written By: Thomas Bloor
Meriel Bloor
URL: http://www.hoddereducation.co.uk/Titles.aspx?isbn=034080680X
Description:

'The Functional Analysis of English' provides a basic introduction to
systemic-functional linguistics in the context of English. It presents the
principles of a Hallidayan approach to language studies and introduces, in
an explanatory way, a set of techniques for the grammatical analysis of
English.

The book includes an overview of the applications of functional grammar to
show the practical importance of linguistic theory and analysis in relation
to issues in education and society. It finishes by explaining the place of
Halliday and his school in the history of linguistics. It can be used
either as a stand-alone text or in combination with Halliday's 'An
Introduction to Functional Grammar'. Linguistic terms are clearly explained
and illustrated with authentic examples from a wide variety of sources
including scientific and technical texts. 'The Functional Analysis of
English' will be suitable for anyone approaching Hallidayan linguistics for
the first time, particularly English language teachers.
