Summary "This first comprehensive account of the Appraisal Framework, a newly developed approach to analysing the language of evaluation and stance. The authors offer new insights into the nature of evaluative language and into its social and rhetorical functionality. They explore the role evaluative meanings play in the dissemination of ideology, in the construction of textual styles and authorial identities, and in the negotiation of speaker/listener, writer/reader relationships."--Jacket
