Community

The interests of Functional Discourse Grammar are promoted by the International Functional Grammar Foundation (IFGF), based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The Foundation seeks to foster a sense of community among researchers in FDG. Work on FDG is carried out in many different places across the globe, sometimes in research groups, but more often by individual researchers. The purpose of this page is to enhance the exchange of ideas among all these researchers by giving access to the community.
