Title: Systemic Functional Grammar of Spanish
Subtitle: A Contrastive Study with English
Written By: Julia Lavid
Jorge Arus

Description:

This second volume offers a systemic-functional account of Spanish, and
analyses how Spanish grammatical forms compare and contrast with those of
English. The authors analyse Spanish according to the three main
'metafunctions': ideational, interpersonal, and textual.

The result is a comprehensive examination of Spanish grammar from the
clause upwards. Presupposing little or no knowledge of Spanish, this book
will be of interest to researchers in Spanish language, systemic functional
linguistics or contrastive linguistics.
