New edition of a best-selling introduction to systemic functional linguistics explores the social semiotic approach to language most closely associated with the work of Michael Halliday and his colleagues. An approach which views language as a strategic, meaning-making resource, systemic linguistics focuses on the analysis of authentic, everyday texts, and asks both how people use language to make meanings, and how language itself is organised to enable those meanings to be made. The book offers both an overview of systemic theory and illustrations of how systemic techniques can be applied in the analysis of everyday texts. Written for students who may have little or no formal knowledge of linguistics, it covers most of the major concepts in systemic linguistics. In addition, it introduces readers to Halliday's functional grammatical analysis of English clauses, and presents the essentials of the systemic analysis of cohesive patterns in text. With its systemic theory of the relationship between language and context, systemic linguistics has applications in many fields where an understanding of how language functions to transmit social structure is important, in , for example, language education, cultural studies, stylistics, and women's studies. The book provides an accessible first step into systemics for those who wish to equip themselves with the conceptual and practical tools to analyse and explain how people make meanings with each other in everyday contexts.

Review:

"This book is certainly a welcome and valuable addition to the current literature both on introduction to systemic functional linguistics and on text analysis. I would certainly recommend this as the main textbook and/or reference book on introduction to systemic functional linguistics and/or systemic functional text analysis." The Linguist list, May 2005--Sanford Lakoff

Synopsis:

This new edition is an introduction to systemic functional linguistics which explores the social semiotic approach to language most closely associated with the work of M.A.K. Halliday. It incorporates several important developments within systemic linguistics, including a new chapter on the logical relations of the clause complex, discussion of the application of systemic linguistics to the analysis of multi-modal texts and clarification of systemics as a critical theory of meaning in the context of post-structuralist critical and cultural theories.
