Comment on Systemic Functional Grammar – Part 4 (The Textual Metafunction & Conclusion) by Scott Windham

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 14:02:48 +0000

Thank you for these posts! My comparative literature degree didn't prepare me for the job I actually have: teaching German as L2. Your posts haven given me the foundation in SFG that I needed. Now I can tackle seminal articles like Byrnes's "Emergent L2 German writing ability in a curricular context" (2009). One question (if you are still replying to this thread; I know the post is 6 years old): Do you have a concrete example of how to "analyse students’ use of structures within the three metafunctions in comparison to well-produced texts, and precisely identify how they can improve their communicative skills"? (3rd para. from bottom) I think I understand that concept in theory, but I learn deductively, so a real-world example would be very helpful... if you have time! By the way, EFL scholars like you have paved the way for foreign language teachers (at least in the USA). Your scholarship on/of teaching & learning has been inspirational and groundbreaking for us.

Great post! This is something that as a native speaker, I never gave much thought about. When I was traveling in Nepal I was very irritated that the locals and other tourists from non English speaking countries, couldn't understand my English but could easily understand my husband's non native English. I realized I needed to "lower" my English so people could understand me. A language is not just the ability to use a language, it's the ability to communicate with different people. Native speakers should be more aware of this. Also, as you said, L2 students need to be taught the cultural references as well.
