9780340806807: The Functional Analysis of English (Arnold Publication)

The Functional Analysis of English, Second Edition 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, Second Edition will be suitable for anyone approaching Hallidayan linguistics for the first time, particularly English language teachers.

Review:

Provides readers with useful and succinct notes...suggestions for further study and reading...particularly useful not only for students, but also teachers.
Japanese Association of English Teachers

Very clear introduction to difficult concepts - great exercises
Dr Sheena Gardner, University of Warwick, UK

'The best for this level.'
P. Livesey, University of Central Lancashire

Each chapter has a summary, suggestions for further study and a number of exercises. And the time-challenged lecturer will welcome to answers at the back of the book. The glossary is generous, and where appropriate capital letters are used to follow the conventions of SFL.
