This article applies Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) to the study of language dysfunction. It demonstrates the potential that Systemic Functional analysis can offer to one aspect of the analysis of language dysfunction-the failure to realise complexes of clauses. For the purpose of analysis, new concepts and new measures have been created. The newly defined concepts and measures are illustrated in the discourse data of normally developing children and adolescents with brain injury.
