    Default English language functions

    Hi all,
    Just going through the CELTA pre-interview task. There are questions on language functions and thei labels. Although it seems pretty straightforward this is not something I was taught when learning English. Can anyone tell me where I can find a list of all the function labels and recommend a good book to read on the subject?
    Many thanks

    Is this about functional grammar? Functional syllabi?

    Check the links in ICAL Pete's post here and let us know if they aren't what you're looking for.
