"This marvelous volume, with its kaleidoscopic approach to linguistic
research, "constantly turning language round and around" as Halliday puts
it, presents an extraordinarily imaginative picture of language and its
relationships to science, society, and consciousness. Even the earliest
papers, which excited me as I first got to know his work, still offer
stimulating ideas for contemporary readers."
-Sydney M. Lamb, Emeritus Professor, Rice University, Texas.
This third volume in the Collected Works of M. A. K. Halliday series
includes papers that explore different aspects of language from a systemic
functional perspective. The papers are organized into three sections: the
place of linguistics as a discipline; linguistics and language; and
language as social semiotic. In addition, there is a new work from
Professor Halliday, entitled 'On the "architecture" of human language', in
which he focuses on the assumptions or working hypotheses that enabled him
to explore important questions about this massive semiotic power called
Professor M. A. K. Halliday (b. 1925) was Foundation Professor of
Linguistics at the University of Sydney until his retirement and has taught
as a Visiting Professor around the world. As a self-styled 'generalist' he
has published in many branches of linguistics.
Jonathan J. Webster is Head of the Department of Chinese, Translation and
Linguistics at the City University of Hong Kong.
