Miller holds the Chair of English Linguistics at the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures of the University of Bologna, where she heads the Research Centre for Linguistic-Cultural Studies (CeSLiC). Her research has focused on register analysis in institutional text types, her corpus-assisted investigations exploring the grammar of evaluation in terms of APPRAISAL SYSTEMS. Recently she has been investigating the Hasanian model of 'verbal art'. She is co-author of Language and Verbal Art Revisited (with Monica Turci, Equinox Publishing, 2007).Paul Bayley is Professor of English Language and Linguistics at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Bologna. He is head of teaching and learning activities at the Bologna University Language Centre.

"...This book provides a comprehensive and insightful framework for the analysis of hybridity within SFL and will be an excellent reference for researchers working on SFL, hybridity, discourse analysis, stylistics or language teaching." --Enhua Guo and Delu Zhang, Australian Journal of Linguistics, 2017 "...Donna R. Miller and Paul Bayley must be congratulated on their impressive editorial work. The book is much to be recommended to any student, lecturer, or researcher interested in hybridity." --Ruby Rong Wei, LINGUIST List Vol. 28.1389 "Overall, the volume adds to readers' vectors for appreciating and investigating those linguistic phenomena that may be labeled as exhibiting fuzziness, indeterminacy, intersection, agnation or features subject to double coding, no matter whether the issue of hybridity or permeability emerges at the stratum or lexicogrammar, semantic discourse or context. This suffices to guarantee, in my view, that the volume will be welcomed by scholars and researchers interested in functional grammar, discourse analysis, genre analysis and the semogensis of social semiotic resources." --Wenchao Zhao Discourse Studies 19(5) "[The] volume offers much to language teachers, discourse analysts and language theorists, with the main strength of the volume being the inclusion of a rich array of highly instructive and engaging exemplar texts, situations and analytical approaches and a clear demonstration that SFL indeed has much to say about hybridity in discourse." --Wendy L. Bowcher, Sun Yat-sen University, Discourse and Society "...Taken as a whole, the volume is still a very valuable monograph on systemic functional linguistics. It is just like a beautiful chorus, meeting the needs of the development of the area. [...]All in all, it deserves to be carefully read by scholars who are committed to the study of systemic functional linguistics, cognitive linguistics, pedagogy, second language acquisition, professional practice, discourse analysis and stylistic analysis." --Wei Rong, The Journal of Foreign Languages Vol. 41 No. 1
