Equinox Textbooks and Surveys in Linguistics
Robin Fawcett [+–]
Cardiff University, (Emeritus)
Robin Fawcett is Emeritus Professor in Linguistics and Director of the Computational Linguistics Unit, Centre for Language and Communication Research, Cardiff University. His research interests include general linguistics, systemic functional linguistics in a socio-cognitive framework, the computer modelling of language in both generation and understanding, and English and other languages for both of these purposes and for the analysis of texts. His most recent publications include Meaning and Form: Systemic Functional Interpretations (co-edited with M. Berry, C. Butler and G. Huang, 1996). He is also the series editor for Functional Linguistics and Discussions in Functional Approaches to Language, both published by Equinox.
This eclectic series provides textbooks for beginning students as well as offering handbooks and surveys of specific research topics. It is ecumenical in terms of theoretical approach as the main objective is to provide a route into a particular topic suitable for the uninitiated or, alternatively, a survey of currents in contemporary research on a particular topic.
Prospective authors should contact Janet Joyce in the first instance to discuss ideas for new projects.
