'Routledge are to be congratulated for publishing this greatly revised edition of Angela Downing and Philip Locke's Grammar, now entitled English Grammar: A University Course. In my Preface I welcomed enthusiastically the first edition as an innovative course in Systemic Functional Grammar. Now what we have is a greatly revised work with the advantage of insights from recent research in corpus linguistics, studies in sociolinguistic interaction and discourse, genre analysis and cognitive linguistics. As such, this new and more comprehensive Grammar will sit well with a range of contemporary English language courses and programs, from those more functionally text-based to those exploring the interface between lexico-grammar and interaction. It will, I am confident, continue to be of the utmost value to researchers and practitioners.' - Christopher N. Candlin, Senior Research Professor, Linguistics, Macquarie University
