Books in the series Key Concepts in Systemic Functional Linguistics provide monographic treatments of core theoretical concepts within Systemic Functional Linguistics, together with coverage of more recent concerns in Systemic Functional Linguistic theory and important areas of application and trans-disciplinary collaboration.
Each monograph is organised around a description of the historical factors that led to the emergence of the concept within Systemic Functional Linguistics and a detailed theoretical description of the concept within the overall architecture of the theory.
Authors in this series are encouraged to explore any perceived inconsistencies, ambiguities or omissions and to illustrate the connections and divergences between Systemic Functional Linguistics and other functional linguistic theories/schools. Each author brings their own personal observations of how Systemic Functional Linguistics will develop as a theory with respect to the particular concept and provides a critical analysis of the topic with the object of stimulating further discussion and ongoing research.
Because each monograph is typically no more than 60,000 words, the series provides an accessible but comprehensive account of some the most important and potentially contentious concepts in Systemic Functional Linguistics. As such the series is an invaluable source for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and established academics working with SFL or with other functional theories as well as researchers working in cognate disciplines.
Topics covered by this series include:
The Experiential Metafunction: transitivity and ergativity
The Interpersonal Metafunction: subject, mood and modality
The Textual Metafunction: textuality and information structure/including intonation
The Logical Metafunction: structural and semantic complexes
Lexis and Phraseology
Generic Structure Potential
Attitude and Stance
Cohesion and Ellipsis
Mind, Brain and Socialisation
SFL and Sociolinguistics
SFL and (C)DA
SFL and Corpus Linguistics
SFL and Computational Linguistics
SFL and Mixed Methods – statistics, eye-tracking and key stroke logging
