Abstract:

This book provides a basic introduction to systemic functional linguistics in the context of English: it presents the principles of Hallidayan approach to language study and introduces, in an explanatory way, a set of techniques for the grammatical analysis of English.

It includes an overview of applications of functional grammar to show the practical importance of linguistic theory and analysis in relation to issues in education and society, and explains the place Halliday and his school have in the history of linguistics. Linguistic terms are clearly explained and illustrated with authentic examples of English from a wide variety of sources, including scientific and technical texts.

Used either in combination with Halliday's An Introduction to Functional Grammar or as a stand-alone text, The Functional Analysis of English will be suitable for anyone appraching Hallidayan linguistics for the first time.
