Linguistic Prefabrication: A Discourse Analysis ApproachLinguistic Prefabrication: A Discourse Analysis Approach

This book presents an innovative exploration of linguistic prefabrication in the travel advertising discourse from a functional perspective. Most of the previous studies on prefabricated language have adopted a structural, systematic point of view. This study, however, aims at exploring its functions in discourse. The material examined here is the discourse of travel advertising, which has become one of the candidates for 'late modern discourse par excellence' and rarely been discussed before.

The Discourse of Physics: Building Knowledge through Language, Mathematics and ImageThis book provides a detailed model of both the discourse and knowledge of physics and offers insights toward developing pedagogy that improves how physics is taught and learned. Building on a rich history of applying a Systemic Functional Linguistics approach to scientific discourse, the book uses an SFL framework, here extended to encompass the more recently developed Systemic Functional Multimodal Discourse Analysis approach, to explore the field’s multimodal nature and offer detailed descriptions of three of its key semiotic resources – language, image, and mathematics.
