This volume presents a collection of papers using the theory of Functional Discourse Grammar (FDG) to analyse and explain a number of specific constructions or phenomena (external possessor contructions and binominal constructions, negation, adverbial modification, epistemic modality, degrees of transparency, and polysynthesis) from different perspectives, language-specific, comparative and typological.

In addition to applying the theory of Functional Discourse Grammar to the topics in question, these papers aim to contribute to the further development of the theory by modifying and extending it on the basis of new linguistic evidence from a range of languages, thus providing the latest state-of-the-art in FDG.
