The shift towards a sociolinguistic approach to the analysis of
language in the last few decades has necessitated new definitions
for a number of concepts that linguists have taken for granted for
a long time. This volume attempts to demystify the important
notions of 'text' and 'context' by providing clear definitions and
examples within the assumptions of Systemic Functional (SF)
linguistics. After a discussion of the role and significance of
context by three eminent SF linguists in section one, the influence
of context on text is dealt with in section two 'From Context to
Language'. Section three 'From Language to Context' considers
textual features and their relationship to contextual factors. All
the contributors base their analyses on data collected from a
variety of spoken and written registers of contemporary English.
