Books Info:

Exploring English Grammar free pdf This engaging textbook bridges the gap between traditional and functional grammar. Starting with a traditional approach, students will develop a firm grasp of traditional tools for analysis and learn how SFG (Systemic Functional grammar) can be used to enrich the traditional formal approach. Using a problem-solving approach, readers explore how grammatical structures function in different contexts by using a wide variety of thought-provoking and motivating texts including adverts, cartoons, phone calls and chatroom dialogue. Each chapter focuses on a real world issue or problem that can be investigated linguistically, such as 'mis'-translation or problems arising from a communication disorder. By working on these problems, students will become equipped to understand and analyse formal and functional grammar in different genres and styles. With usable and accessible activities throughout, "Exploring English Grammar" is ideal for upper undergraduate and postgraduate students of English language and linguistics.
