9780415825931: The Functional Analysis of English

The Functional Analysis of English is an introduction to the analysis and description of English, based on the principles of systemic functional linguistics. It sets out the tools and analytic techniques of Hallidayan grammar with clear explanations of terminology and illustrates these with examples from a variety of texts, including science, travel, history and literary sources. This revised third edition incorporates references to recent research, better explanations of complex problems, and additional exercises.

Key features:

  • an updated overview of applications to real world issues
  • revised sections on the current historical position of systemic functional grammar
  • simple introductions to agnation, grammatical metaphor, and information structure
  • chapter summaries, suggestions for further reading, exercises with answers and a glossary of terms
  • a companion website with additional activities, exercises and supplementary readings for students and instructors

This third edition is an indispensable introduction to systemic functional linguistics, which can be used independently or in preparation for M.A.K. Halliday and C.M.I.M. Matthiessen’s Introduction to Functional Grammar. The book is an ideal text for students of linguistics, applied linguistics and grammar- those new to the field, or who have a background in traditional grammar, as well as teachers of English language.

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.


Anne Sachtleben, TESOLANZ Journal
