Abstract:

This book is the first to combine interests in two currently popular
approaches to language description, both of which are based on the
observation of naturally-occurring, as opposed to invented, language.
Systemic Functional Linguistics is a theory that focuses on meaning, choice
and probability in language and on language as a social phenomenon.

Corpus Linguistics is a practice, rather than a theory: a corpus is a large
collection of texts that are used as the basis for language description. It
is natural that SFL should turn to corpora as a source of information about
grammatical preference, probability and variety, and some of the papers in
this collection explore this dimension of the interaction between system
and corpus.

Conversely, corpus linguists have made generalisations about language that
contextualize but also challenge the theories of SFL. Some of the papers in
the collection expand on this theme. A concluding paper by M.A.K. Halliday
responds to the issues raised. The book will therefore be of interest to
students and researchers involved in either of these two influential topics
in linguistics.
