*Please Note that ''Call for Papers'' is Closed*
We welcome papers that take a systemic functional perspective on any
aspect of language and related semiotic systems, including
computational, descriptive, developmental, (critical) discourse,
educational, forensic, historical, literary, psychiatric,
psychological, social, therapeutic, theoretical and typological
linguistics and semiotics. In 2004, we particularly invite
contributors to consider approaching their topic from the point of
view of using SFL theory to analyze other languages from different
perspectives. Of course, papers will be welcome that develop original
analyses of natural language in the well-established English-oriented
framework of study, but we wish to especially encourage papers that
make use of SFL theory outside the English-oriented realm.

Convenors: Masa-aki Tatsuki, Hisao Kakehi, and Wendy Bowcher
