Abstract

The aim of this conference was to explore Systemic Functional Linguistics insights into language use in today’s digital age. Following the SFL proclivity for trinocular perspectives, the conference theme was realized through papers that used SFL to analyze new types of text that were born (or conceived) digitally, such as blogs, tweets and facebook; through texts that achieve digitality, being digitally conceived manifestations of established practices, such as giving medical advice, mourning, and teacher education; and through papers that had digitality thrust upon them in that new digital methods including corpus tools were used to provide new perspectives in SFL analysis of areas such as register, ellipsis and research articles.
