"This book challenges the orthodox view by arguing that grammar should be construed as a system that is able to characterize different types of conversation. Drawing on extensive corpusstudies of the British National Corpus, the book presents a grammatically rooted theory of conversation, and convincingly demonstrates that grammar must link up directly with conversation." - Beishui Liao, Discourse Studies, 2014
