Studies in Second Language Acquisition
Presenting an outline of the grammar of modern English in the framework of systemic-functional linguistic theory, this book serves as an introduction to functional theory in general, which can be used for describing any language in its own terms. The description of English presented here has been widely used in a number of applied linguistic contexts, particularly in artificial intelligence and language education, both second-language and mother-tongue, but also in literary stylistics and other fields requiring a rich interpretation of the text.
