Please note that this unit has been altered to accommodate our delivery provisions in compliance with current COVID-19 requirements (Special Circumstance delivery). Learning activities (such as tutorials and other small group learning activities) will be offered on-campus while keeping an online version available for those students who choose to continue their studies online (selected via eStudent). Learning activities for this unit will be delivered as follows:
The unit is delivered by one two hour lecture, and a one hour compulsory tutorial.
Lectures are delivered live viz zoom. Zoom recordings are available shortly after the conclusion of the lecture.
Tutorials are available both on campus and via zoom - enrol via eStudent.
Students need to use one of two recommended text books:
1. An Introduction to Functional Grammar, Halliday and Matthiessen, 2014.
This is a detailed overview of functional grammar. It is available in electronic form through Macquarie library. It is highly recommended - but can be daunting when you are first getting started with the study of grammar.
2. Using Functional Grammar: An Explorer's Guide. Butt, Fahey, Spinks, Yallop, Feez. 3rd Edition, 2012. This is only available in hard copy in the library. It is a shorter, simpler version of the content. If you can get an earlier edition second hand, it will be suitable.
