6. Description Abstract Systemic Functional Linguistics is a linguistics for the analysis of texts. This chapter will make reference to the theory’s metafunctions and the role of phonology as a meaning-making resource in oral texts within the logical, interpersonal, and textual metafunctions. It will also provide an overview of other approaches to the study of phonology which have addressed intonation from a discourse perspective, describing intonation systems in relationship to concrete authentic texts in their contexts. David Brazil’s Discourse Intonation, Wallace Chafe’s account of how intonation signals the flow of information, as well as work by interactional researchers Elizabeth Couper-Kuhlen and Beatrice Szczepek Reed (among others) which studies prosody as contextualization cues will be briefly described in reference to phonology in SFL.
