Abstract

This article is meant to point out the overall message conveyed in Bayo
Adebowale’s novel, Lonely Days (2006). Based on Systemic Functional Linguistics, the
article focuses on the transitivity patterns. Examining two key extracts under such a
linguistic-stylistic angle will contribute with enough scientific evidence to revealing that,
indeed, as may be noticed by any reader (ordinary readers and scholars alike), the main
character Yaremi’s living conditions as a widow, constitute the topic of the examined
excerpts as well as the whole literary artifact under consideration. From the exploration
of the different process types and their attendant participants in the selected texts, one
can realize that it is all about woman’s compelling need for man to give her life a full
sense, and, above all, the necessity of securing special interpersonal relationships with
widows for their well-being.
Keywords: Lonely Days, Experiential Meaning, Transitivity, Process types, widow, living
conditions.
