Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

This volume examines the relationship between language and literacy from a
systemic functional perspective. The book starts with a retrospective view
on the development of language education practices, written by eminent
linguistics Michael Halliday and Ruqaiya Hasan, and then shows how this
approach is implemented today. The second section presents a detailed
analysis of how considerations of literacy education are approached in
educational systems around the world. The contributors examine issues such
as metadiscourse, genre, cultural politics, and how systemic functional
grammar can help to raise literacy standards. The final section looks at
literacy in more specific disciplines, including history, literature,
science and student writing. 

The essays collected here present a comprehensive analysis of language and
literacy from a systemic functional perspective, written by academics at
the forefront of the field. It will be of interest to researchers in
systemic functional linguistics, or language and education.
