This volume offers a variety of viewpoints on the functional approach to the study of language. After an exposition of the Prague School functionalism, and Dik's and Halliday's functional approaches, it presents a wider area of text-linguistic, psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic, theoretical, descriptive and applied issues from a functional point of view, testifying of the very wide-spread and in-depth impact of functionalist thought on the present-day linguistic scene.

Table of Contents
“The volume clearly demonstrates the correctness of the editor's contention that functionalist thinking continues to have a significant (i.e. essential and inextricable) impact on current linguistics. ...its relevance to current work in a period of theoretical ferment makes it higly recommended reading.”
