"This book illustrates the appliability of Systemic Functional Linguistics in the study of political discourse from three dimensions: from above (with the provision of context), from around (with the provision of semantics), and from below (with the provision of lexicogrammar). The approach adopted in the book can be succinctly used to analyze other discourse types, as its theoretical basis is 'appliable linguistics'."Huang Guo Wen, South China Agricultual University, China
