Abstract:

This fifth volume of the collected works explores 'the semantic
character of scientific discourse.' It opens with a new essay by
Professor Halliday in which he looks at the power of language to make
meaning, and addresses the question 'how big is a language'? In the
essays that follows Halliday argues that there is no single register
of science, but there are numerous scientific discourses. Looking at
the history of scientific discourse, it is possible to see new
strategies evolving which are grounded in processes of metaphor.
These grammatical metaphors increase the power that a language has for
theorizing and hence it is within these metaphors that much of the
power of language resides.
