- Functional Discourse Grammar (FDG) is a typologically based structural-functional theory of language. It has a top-down organization to achieve psychological adequacy, and takes the Discourse Act as its basic unit of analysis to achieve pragmatic adequacy. Although itself strictly a model of grammar, FDG is designed to interact with Conceptual, Contextual, and Output Components, so as to enhance its compatibility with a wider theory of verbal interaction.
