This book describes language as a network of functional relations involving a context which is also a network of functional relations. Part I presents essays from a variety of perspectives on the theory of language as functional relations. Part II presents essays that describe an oral text from a variety of functional perspectives. This book is among the first to integrate the analysis of the language of spoken and written texts.
