Functional Sentence Perspective (FSP)
1) What is it?
The functional sentence perspective looks at how language functions in the act of communication. It pays special attention to context and questions related to the theme-rheme (topic-focus) structure of a sentence.
Rheme is the part of a sentence that gives further information on the topic (the theme).
A sentence combines old information with new information. The position of the information tends to emphasize how it should be understood.
The new information tends to appear near the end of the sentence, while the beginning acts to put it into context.

There was indeed a special reason for his good mood: He had just received a message of the People's Council, the most powerful organisation of the world. A quest for the Council meant one thing: Money, and lots of it. John could really need some of that, in fact he had just spent

It took hours before the fire eventually burned itself out, and even then, there wasn't much to salvage. Everything had pretty much been burned to ash. The only thing that happened to survive, to Ember's dismay, was her bow. Which Mathew told her to keep. Adam knew she would probably burn it when she got the chance.
"So, what do we do?" He asked everyone, once they had picked through every nook and cranny of the ruined house.
"I guess we go into town and... see what we can find." Ember said, looking off down the road. "We either purchase what we need, or steal it."
"Steal?" Amber didn't seem to like that idea.

That magic is not real
They are lying,
Because magic is what music is made of.
Imagine that you are a violin.
You have three strings:
And the Soul.
Music is the bow
That comes out of the abyss
And sings along your strings.
Imagine that you
Are a rare and beautiful fish.
Music is the crashing waves
And swirling currents
That carry you to never never land.
Imagine that you are a sailor.
Music is the wind
Whipping through your hair
Which reminds you that this is where you belong.
Imagine that you are on an adventure.

Crows above, priests below.
The soul was a city broken but not sowed with salt
yet. It smothered the past with headlights,
streetlights swallowed by neon

between window reflections, painted your eyes,

Lightning crouched like an animal

If you trust in me
I can bring you new chaos in your world
If you stay with me

You're my soil and I'm your tree.
My roots move deeper,
slowly grow into you.
I take a life from you
and give you confidence, safety, firmness.
Tie you and tightly hold in embrace,
tear you from inside with my roots
and you can't escape.
My wide trunk is on you the full weight.
I feel moisture from depth,
vibrations from deep ground.
I grown in you...
I'm your tree and you're my soil.

The Lord of the Rings, he had seen the movies when he was younger, all those nuts were right, he thought. The book was defiantly better. Private Barnes came back in from a raid, mumbled something intelligible and collapsed on to the bunk under Brandon. He remembered joining the resistance a few months back, it wasn't exactly easy but at least they stood a chance of surviving. This was everything and nothing like the apocalypse movies he had seen as a kid. Although he supposed everything was different once you actually experienced it. At least there was food.

Now they were in the thick of a major firefight, trying to hold off a determined Royalist attack alongside the surviving militia Dynacrosses while keeping an eye out for space-to-surface missiles. To make matters worse, the orbiting capital ships were blasting away at anything that moved, not even bothering to check their targets.
