Book Information


Title: Systemic Functional Grammar of Spanish
Subtitle: A Contrastive Study with English
Written By: Julia Lavid
Jorge Arus
Juan Rafael Zamorano-Mansilla

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

This systemic-functional account of Spanish, analyzes how Spanish
grammatical forms compare and contrast with those of English.

This book offers a systemic-functional account of Spanish, and analyzes how
Spanish grammatical forms compare and contrast with those of English. The
authors analyze 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.
