Mood Residue The exchange of information involves an intangible, verbal commodity and language is the end in itself. The demanding of information is expressed by a question realised by an interrogative. Statements and questions propositions can be argued with, denied, adjusted, etc. However, declaratives andinterrogatives could also be polite requests for goods-and-services since basic commands might be considered Face Threatening Acts, and thus highly impolite Brown and Levinson, Modals are also often used to disguise demanding proposals or soften propositions Bloor and Bloor, , but it is important that EFL students initially learn the most straightforward grammatical realisations of the interpersonal metafunction, before shifting towards increasing interpersonal distance through less straightforward structures Butt et al, Teachers can help students anchor such viewpoints within the Mood.

Each of the three metafunctions is about a different aspect of the world, and is concerned with a different mode of meaning of clauses. The ideational metafunction is about the natural world in the broadest sense, including our own consciousness, and is concerned with clauses as representations. The interpersonal metafunction is about the social world, especially the relationship between speaker and hearer, and is concerned with clauses as exchanges.

The textual metafunction is about the verbal world, especially the flow of information in a text, and is concerned with clauses as messages. In each metafunction an analysis of a clause gives a different kind of structure composed from a different set of elements. In the ideational metafunction, a clause is analysed into Process, Participants and Circumstances, with different participant types for different process types as in Case Grammar.

In the interpersonal metafunction, a clause is analysed into Mood and Residue, with the mood element further analysed into Subject and Finite. In the textual metafunction, a clause is analysed into Theme and Rheme as in the Prague School.

Figure 1. Each metafunction has a principal system in the networks for clauses, verbal groups and nominal groups. System interconnections across metafunctions are rare.

Overview of Systemic Functional Linguistics

Ideational function[ edit ] The ideational function is language concerned with building and maintaining a theory of experience. It includes the experiential function and the logical function. Experiential function[ edit ] The experiential function refers to the grammatical choices that enable speakers to make meanings about the world around us and inside us: "Most obviously, perhaps, when we watch small children interacting with the objects around them we can see that they are using language to construe a theoretical model of their experience. This is language in the experiential function; the patterns of meaning are installed in the brain and continue to expand on a vast scale as each child, in cahoots with all those around, builds up, renovates and keeps in good repair the semiotic "reality" that provides the framework of day-to-day existency and is manifested in every moment of discourse, spoken or listened to. We should stress, I think, that the grammar is not merely annotating experience; it is construing experience. Thus, the human species had to "make sense of the complex world in which it evolved: to classify, or group into categories, the objects and events within its awareness".
