An inspiring advocate for Systemic-Functional Linguistics
Geoff Thompson (1947–2015)
The work of Geoff Thompson, who until his death was an editor of Functions of Language, has had an international reach for over 40 years. He has contributed to advances in Systemic-Functional Linguistics, in particular extending theories of interaction and evaluation in discourse. His Introducing Functional Grammar is an indispensable guide to the field.
