Recent publishing in linguistics indicates scholars are moving toward using corpora in analysis of both spoken and written text. However, there are few detailed discussions of the language of a single oral text from multiple perspectives. This collection of 11 articles addresses that lack by focusing on language as a network of functional relations involving a context which is also a network of functional relations. Theoretical topics include the systemic- functional tradition, the global model program of one text, the flow of information in a written English text, intrastratal and interstratal relations in language and their functions, and ideology, intertextuality and the communications of science. Topics on applications include memory and discourse, highlighting in stratificational-cognitive linguistics, interpreting discourse, prosody and emotion in a sample of real speech, phasal analysis within communication and some aspects of coherence in a conversation.
