This quantity, which represents an enormous improve on Simon Dik's ultimate assertion of the idea (1997), lays the root for the long run evolution of FG in the direction of a sensible Discourse Grammar. It rises to the double problem of specifying the interface among discourse and grammar and of detailing the expression ideas that hyperlink semantic illustration and morphosyntactic shape. the hole bankruptcy, by means of Kees Hengeveld, units out in programmatic shape a brand new structure for FG which either preserves the simplest of the normal version and gives a spot for varied fresh insights. the remainder chapters are dedicated to refining and constructing the programme laid down through Hengeveld, bringing in facts from a number of languages in addition to theoretical insights encouraged via adjacent frameworks. Of certain curiosity are an account via Matthew Anstey of the way present proposals come up from the historical past of FG and diverse chapters during which the version is introduced a lot in the direction of an account of real-time language construction, significantly together with the 1st ever certain account of the workings of expression principles, by way of Dik Bakker and Anna Siewierska. the ultimate bankruptcy, additionally by way of Hengeveld, attracts jointly the findings of some of the chapters, culminating in an elaborated version that represents the main refined assertion of sensible Grammar presently on hand. the quantity therefore supplies a coherent account of FG as a thought which mixes formal explicitness with a wide account of language capabilities.
