Abstract

This thesis explores the relevant systems which model the choices speakers make when referring to objects. Referring expressions have received relatively little attention in Systemic Functional Linguistics, although from a purely structural perspective some work has attempted to account for postmodification in the nominal group. The main goal of this thesis is to produce a theoretical and analytical approach to referring expressions including complex referring expressions in particular. This requires a shift in perspective from structural (‘nominal group’) to functional (‘referring expression’).
