Ecological Discourse Analysis from the Perspective of Systemic Functional Linguistics

JUAN SONG, MIN TANG

Abstract


Ecological discourse analysis is an important field in the study of ecolinguistics, which attempts to reveal the relation between human beings and the ecosystem through discourse analysis within an ecological framework. The view of language in systemic functional linguistics provides theoretical perspectives for ecological discourse analysis. The interpretation of ecological discourse through the experiential, interpersonal and textual meaning can provide insights into how discourse plays a role in constructing the relationship between human beings and the ecosystem. With the help of this framework, researchers can effectively and directly reveal the ecological meaning realized through languages, so that they can identify the types of discourses to promote eco-beneficial one, resist eco-destructive ones and refine ambivalent ones.
