About this product
- DescriptionThis is the first textbook on Functional Discourse Grammar, a recently developed theory of language structure which analyses utterances at the pragmatic, semantic, morphosyntactic and phonological level. It focuses principally on English and provides extensive exercises for students to use and evaluate the theory.
- Author BiographyEvelien Keizer is Professor of English Linguistics at the University of Vienna. Her main interest is in the interplay between the discourse-pragmatic, semantic, syntactic, and phonological properties of linguistic expressions. Her overall approach is a functional-cognitive one; more specifically she works within the framework of Functional Discourse Grammar. Her publications include The English Noun Phrase: The Nature of Linguistic Categorization (CUP, 2007) and The Syntax of Dutch: The Noun Phrase, Vol. 1 (Amsterdam University Press, 2011). Her current research interests include syntactic alternations, linguistic categorization, and the analysis of semi-fixed expressions.
