This comprehensive reference and practice grammar is designed for advanced students of English as a foreign language. It takes language functions as its basis and explores these in terms of the language units that realize them. Form is related to meaning which in turn is related to situation. Chapters are divided into modules, which are designed both for class work and self-study use. Examples are given from various texts and transcripts, and summaries are used to emphasize the main points of each chapter. There are also tasks that are designed to broaden the understanding of the ways in which language may be used: these include text analysis.

Angela Downing is Professor Emeritus in the Department of English Language and Linguistics (English Philology I) at the Universidad Complutense, Madrid.
The late Philip Locke taught at the Institute of Modern Languages and Translation at the Universidad Complutense, Madrid.Review:
'Routledge are to be congratulated for publishing this greatly revised edition of Angela Downing and Philip Locke’s Grammar, now entitled English Grammar: A University Course. In my Preface I welcomed enthusiastically the first edition as an innovative course in Systemic Functional Grammar. Now what we have is a greatly revised work with the advantage of insights from recent research in corpus linguistics, studies in sociolinguistic interaction and discourse, genre analysis and cognitive linguistics. As such, this new and more comprehensive Grammar will sit well with a range of contemporary English language courses and programs, from those more functionally text-based to those exploring the interface between lexico-grammar and interaction. It will, I am confident, continue to be of the utmost value to researchers and practitioners.' - Christopher N. Candlin, Senior Research Professor, Linguistics, Macquarie University
