About the Author

Ruqaiya Hasan has taught and held visiting positions at various universities in England, America and Australia. Her last appointment was at Macquarie University, Australia, from where she retired as Emeritus Professor in 1994. Throughout her career she has researched and published widely in the areas of stylistics, culture, context and text, lexicogrammar and semantic variation. The latter involved the devising of extensive semantic system networks for the analysis of meaning in naturally occurring dialogues. Jonathan Webster is currently Acting Head, Department of Chinese, Translation and Linguistics, and Associate Dean (Research and Administration), Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the City University of Hong Kong. In addition to being General Editor of the new journal from Equinox called Linguistics and the Human Sciences (coming in April 2005), he is the Series Editor for the ten volume Collected Works of Professor M.A.K. Halliday (Continuum Books); and also the seven volume Collected Works for Professor Ruqaiya Hasan published by Equinox.


"Readers familiar with systemic functional linguistics, discourse studies, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, language teaching, ethnomethodological and psychological studies will find this collection a salient and extraordinary contribution to these fields, as the volume targets 'context of situation, ' an essential element of the vocabulary of any linguistic theory, a narrow yet profound domain of investigation. [...] It is an excellent textbook that can be used for self-study and as a course book in linguistic classes. As such, the book receives my strongest recommendation." --Mingfang Chen, Discourse Studies 19(5)
