A systemic functional grammar of Chinese nominal groups: a text-based approach

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Based on Halliday’s systemic functional linguistic (SFL) model, the proposed book describes the grammar of Chinese nominal groups for the purpose of text analysis. By exploring the metafunctional grammatical resources in nominal groups, the book provides a new perspective of analysing Chinese texts by looking at the metafunctions realised by elements in the nominal group. The observation of the nominal groups is based on a corpus of 180 quality texts of different text types. With a clear description of the terminology and case studies (see attached for details) at the end of each major chapter to demonstrate how the grammatical resources under discussion can be applied in delicate text analysis below clause level, the proposed publication is more than a grammar book. The content is accessible to readers who are interested in areas of text analysis, Chinese language teaching and learning, English-Chinese comparative linguistic studies and translation studies between English and Chinese.
