Introducing Functional Grammar, Third Edition, gives you a user-friendly overview of the theoretical and practical aspects of the systemic functional grammar (SFG) model. By providing numerous examples of text analysis using the categories introduced and discussing what the analysis shows about how the text works, this third edition is an accessible introduction to functional grammar based closely on the fourth edition of Halliday and Matthiessen'sAn Introduction to Functional Grammar. No prior knowledge of formal linguistics is required because the book provides: an opening chapter on the purpose of linguistic analysis, which outlines the differences between the two major approaches to grammar - functional and formal sound advice and practice on identifying elements of language structure such as clauses and clause constituents an overview of the SFG model - what it is and how it works in-text exercises for you to test your comprehension with the answers available online for you to check your progress. Thoroughly updated throughout and now with a glossary of terms and additional exercises and textual analysis available free online at www.hodderplus.com/linguistics, this third edition of Introducing Functional Grammar remains the essential entry guide to Hallidayan functional grammar.
