Functional Sentence Perspective in Written and Spoken Communicationby John Algeo (Editor), Bas Aarts (Editor), Jan Firbas
The Prague School theory of functional sentence perspective (FSP) is concerned with the distribution of information as determined by all meaningful elements in a written or spoken sentence, such as intonation, word order and context. Jan Firbas discusses the key phenomenon of communicative dynamism, which the sentence elements carry in different degrees, and the distribution of which determines the orientation or perspective of the sentence.
