 Abstract:
 
 For nearly half a century, Professor M. A. K. Halliday has been enriching
 the discipline of linguistics with his keen insights into the social
 semiotic phenomenon we call language. This ten-volume series presents the
 seminal works of Professor Halliday. 
 
 Throughout his career Professor Halliday has continued to address the issue
 of the application of linguistic scholarship to Computational and
 Quantitative Studies.  The sixth volume in the collected works of Professor
 M. A. K. Halliday includes works that span the last five decades, covering
 developments in machine translation and corpus linguistics.   Also included
 is discussion of recent collaborative efforts bringing together those
 working in systemic functional grammar, fuzzy logic and "intelligent
 computing", engaging in what Halliday refers to as computing with meaning.
  The principles and methods outlined in these papers remain as relevant
 today as when they were first published, continuing to point the way
 forward in an endeavour where success depends more on advancing our
 knowledge of language than machines.
