This book is designed to introduce students at the tertiary level to both Systemic Functional Linguistics and Critical Discourse Analysis. It is aimed at developing critical analytical skills so that students can tackle a wide range of discourse types. By connecting SFL and CDA the critical analyses in the book are not only well grounded but transparent. Each chapter in the volume builds a methodological foundation for the development of critical discourse analytical skills.
