Mini-explorations of Systemic Functional Grammar
Designed to offer a brief and engaging introduction to Systemic Functional Grammar (SFG), this book briefly expounds the theoretical conceptions in SFG to readers who are interested in this theory developed by M.A.K. Halliday. Topics focusing on SFG are covered, including a brief survey of SFG, the grammar of discourse, the grammar of interaction, the grammar of experience, the grammar of logic, grammatical metaphor, cohesion, group/phrase, and applications of SFG. Through this book, we also attempt to document and summarize Christian M.I.M. Matthiessen’s various insights on Systemic Functional Linguistics.
