Michael Cummings is Professor emeritus and Senior Scholar in the English Department of York University, Toronto. His research interests include Systemic Functional linguistic approaches to discourse and lexico-grammar in Old English and modern English.

Various discourse registers manifest themselves in structural configurations of grammar, lexis and intonation. Potential at any level is mapped in networks of systems of contrasting choices.
