Description

This edition of The Functional Analysis of English was prepared with two
main objectives: first, to clarify any confusions and to correct infelicities in
the first edition, originally published in 1995; and, second, to incorporate new
developments in Systemic Functional Linguistics.
With respect to these aims, we were helped by our students at the universities
of Aston, Warwick and Birmingham, who did not hesitate to demand
explanations of any passages that seemed to them unclear or to question the
accuracy of our analyses. Their input has been invaluable. We were also
stimulated by feedback we received from lecturers who had chosen to use the
book as course texts. Their comments were sufficiently encouraging for us to
believe that revisions would be worthwhile, and we were able to benefit from
their experiences in universities and colleges in many countries.
The book retains its original purpose of providing a relatively simple introduction
to systemic functional linguistics as it is used in the analysis of
English. It sets out the principles and techniques of systemic functional grammar
with explanations of basic terminology in what we hope is an accessible
way for students who are new to linguistics. Since it also provides the reader
with a set of tools for analyzing real samples of English, we believe it will
also be of use to specialists in other fields, such as discourse analysis, media
studies and gender studies, who have been working with alternative models of
analysis and wish to learn new skills. There is still a chapter, somewhat
expanded, providing an overview of the applications of functional grammar
to social and educational issues and a chapter explaining the place of functional
grammar in the history of linguistics.
