Descripción del producto


This second edition is a more detailed and user-friendly introduction
to an approach to grammar through meaning and function. Functional
gramar is presented ere in a context that enables a broader
socio-cultural orientation to be shown of how language works. Thompson
does this with clarity and the engagement of his readers in the course
of ten chapters ... The book also provides a detailed index,
suggestions for answers to exercises, a comprehensive list of
references, as well as five pages of further reading, related to each
chapter. This is especially helpful for beginners and researchers, not
to mention teachers ... (It) serves as a most worthwhile introduction
to systemic functional grammar and should be on the bookshelf of those
working in the TESOL field. 

Margaret Bade, NZSAL

Reseña del editor

This is an accessible introduction to the most fully developed functional approach to grammar currently available. Now in its second edition, it is closely based on Michael Halliday's An Introduction to Functional Grammar: Third Edition. It can be used either as a comprehensive course book in its own right or as a means of preparing students for the more theoretical treatment of grammar as presented in Halliday's book.

In this thoroughly updated edition, Introducing Functional Grammar describes clearly each of the major grammatical systems in terms of the kind of meaning that they contribute to messages. Starting with simple procedures for identifying the choices in a particular system, each chapter discusses the functions of the system in context. New material on the implications of corpus data and an introduction to systems networks is included; and there is greater emphasis on the exploration of how grammatical analysis can illuminate meaning at text and discourse level. Much of the content has been reorganised and made more user-friendly in response to feedback from students as well as teachers and other linguists. There are numerous worked examples to illustrate the analysis at each stage, as well as practice activities for the reader to try out.
