The communicative, or functional view of language is the view that language is a vehicle for the expression of functional meaning. The semantic and communicative dimensions of language are more emphasized than the grammatical characteristics, although these are also included. This book gives a practical approach to understanding implementations of non-strict functional languages using lazy graph reduction. The book is intended to be a source of practical labwork material, to help make functional-language implementations `come alive’, by helping the reader to develop, modify and experiment with some non-trivial by: 3 Halliday’s Systemic Functional Linguistics Systemic Functional Grammar or Linguistics, first introduced by Michael Halliday (), refers to a new approach to the study of grammar that is radically different from the traditional view in which language is a set of rules for specifying grammatical Size: KB.

This book provides second language teachers with a functional description of English grammar, in which grammar is viewed as a communicative resource.

Information Processing Language (IPL), , is sometimes cited as the first computer-based functional programming language. It is an assembly-style language for manipulating lists of symbols.
