Title: Language of Evaluation
Subtitle: Appraisal in English
Written By: James R. Martin
Peter R. R. White
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=140390409X
Description:

This is the first comprehensive account of the Appraisal Framework, an
approach developed over the past decade for analyzing the language of
evaluation, the linguistic realization of attitudes, judgments and emotion
and the ways in which these evaluations are negotiated interpersonally. The
underlying linguistic theory is explained and justified, and the
application of this flexible tool, which has been applied to a wide variety
of text and discourse analysis issues including classroom interaction,
academic English, literary stylistics, language of the law and of health
professionals, political rhetoric and casual conversation, is demonstrated
throughout by sample text analyses drawn from a range of registers, genres
and fields.
