The volume is the first of three coursebooks especially designed by the editor and adopted in the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literature of the University of Bologna, but also elsewhere on the international scene. It is the start of a three-year metalinguistic reflection that students of the English Language Studies Program are given, alongside their traditional EFL practice classes. The linguistic theory introduced here is also a social theory - a way of looking at language as a social behaviour, a social semiotic. The volume, and the entire series, put into practice an explicit pedagogy that would make the workings of language as visible, and as attainable, as possible for the students, and would empower them socio-linguistically, through an increasing awareness of the functions of language in context, and in culture.

Functional Grammar: An Introduction for the EFL Student

Abstract

The volume is the first of three coursebooks especially designed by the editor and adopted in the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literature of the University of Bologna, but also elsewhere on the international scene. It is the start of a three-year metalinguistic reflection that students of the English Language Studies Program are given, alongside their traditional EFL practice classes. The linguistic theory introduced here is also a social theory - a way of looking at language as a social behaviour, a social semiotic. The volume, and the entire series, put into practice an explicit pedagogy that would make the workings of language as visible, and as attainable, as possible for the students, and would empower them socio-linguistically, through an increasing awareness of the functions of language in context, and in culture.
