Extracts from the Preface

This volume grew out of a series of workshops that were organized at the department of Theroretical and Applied Linguistics (Sektion TAS) at the Karl-Marx-University which led to a conference on 'English Text Linguistics' that was held in Leipzig on November 22 -23, 1978.
Opening the volume are Theses originally sumbitted to conference-participants by the organzers of the workshop. The papers following were contributed not only by regular members of the workshop but by a number af attendants form other GDR universities and from abroad. They illustrate various view-points, but it is fair to say that they represent an attempt to demonstrate how a textual perspective can shed new light on the description of English.
