One of the main purposes of the collection is to make explicit the connections between SFL and CDA - two approaches to the study of language. This volume is the first to make explicit this connection so that novices as well as experienced researchers examining the two fields under "one microscope" can more fully understand how they are related and how CDA can draw on analytical tools rooted in SFL. The book has several aims: to extend the connections between SFL and CDA; to provide analyses of social change that are rooted in linguistic theory and methodology, specifically SFL which provides a solid analytical foundation that helps researchers avoid ideological bias; to critically analyse discursive material that includes, but is not limited to, media; and finally to offer a broad range of international perspectives on the role of discourse in changing social practices and patterns.
