ReviewsOffers a selection of state-of-the-art SFL studies. Complementary approaches, which integrate qualitative analysis with corpus linguistics, are presented as the driving force for change in SFL research. In general, the chapters are well organized, with a clear introduction to provide a contextual and theoretical backgrounds, a description of the method and data to be analysed, an account of the analysis and detailed discussion of the results.
This volume is a timely publication that showcases how SFL can be applied to study new genres that have emerged in digital contexts, how qualitative interpretation of quantitative information may be usefully informed by SFL, and how SFL and corpus research can benefit from each other. As such, it is highly recommended.
