Making Sense of Functional Grammar is the first available workbook in systemic-functional grammar, designed to be used by teachers and teacher educators coming to grips with new English language curricula, researchers interested in approaches to discourse analysis, as well as a textbook for Bachelor or Master's degree courses. The introductory volume in a new series, "Making Sense of Language," it answers your initial questions about functional grammar and genre, how to describe the language used in your classroom, how to teach about the differences in written and spoken language, how to increase your students' awareness of how language is used, and much more; all in a clear and easy-to-follow, down-to-earth style. The authors' wide experience in language teaching and study means that the best of the available perspectives on systemic-functional linguistics have been incorporated into this up-to-date workbook. Both authors have taught grammar at undergraduate and post-graduate levels in both internal and external modes, as well as at various systemic-functional summer schools.

So often I'll have a word I need "on the tip of my tongue" and then it disappears. The Oxford Reverse Dictionary is a marvelous source for finding those elusive words.
