English Grammar - a University Course, by Miss Angela Downing and Philip Locke.

It is now 13 years since the publication of Angela Downing and Philip Locke’s A University Course in English Grammar, which broke new ground by offering to advanced students of English a comprehensive course, based on Halliday’s Systemic Functional Grammar.

It went beyond the merely structural, to present an integrated account of structure and function, which gives students the information they need in order to link the grammar of English to the overall structure of discourse and to the contexts in which it is produced. Ever since its publication, the book has been used in many countries in South America, the Middle East and Europe, including of course Spain, to whose tertiary education systems both authors devoted the majority of their working lives. Downing and Locke’s grammar, while clearly rooted in Hallidayan linguistics, also responds to a number of other influences, including the grammars of Quirk and his colleagues. However, it also made its own important contribution to our knowledge and understanding of many points of English grammar, and has been widely cited by scholars working within functional linguistics.

A university course:

The password is "again".

In what? About what? Made by whom? Which university? To what standard? Rated how?   

Sorry but I think this forum needs to move away from posting random links without commentary or substance, this plea has been made repeatedly in other threads.
