Summary "This edited collection is about the application of English grammar and specialises in 'functional' and 'corpus' approaches, which are increasingly recognised as providing significant insights into English language in action. It aims to stimulate interest and understanding of grammar as an applied tool not just for grammarians or language learners, but for all those interested in how language is organised to shape our view of events in the world."--Jacket.
