Abstract:
			
'Linguistic Studies of Text and Discourse' is the second in a series
of volumes presenting the collected works of Professor
M.A.K. Halliday. The papers in this volume focus on the application
of systemic functional grammar to the analysis of texts, both
highly-valued and everyday, both written and spoken. Presenting
detailed linguistic analyses of specific texts, ranging from the
highly-valued by such authors as William Golding, J.B. Priestly,
Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Charles Darwin, to the more everyday
variety, such as a fund-raising letter and part of a doctoral defense,
Halliday explores the power of grammar at work to create meaning, to
change our lives for better or worse. Each text is studied as one
would any kind of language, in terms of the linguistic resources that
contribute to the realization of its 'meaning potential'. Not only
are the analyses interesting for what they reveal about the texts
under investigation, but also instructive in the practice and methods
of systemic grammar analysis.
