Abstract:

"This volume brings together a varied collection of papers exemplifying an
'appliable linguistics': one that illuminates the many ways language is
used. Language, as Halliday has frequently asserted, has evolved in the
human species as a fundamental resource with which we build and negotiate
relationships, shape experience and deal with the many issues and
challenges of life. Though other linguistic theories might be used, it is
systemic functional linguistic theory that is shown in this volume to best
meet the requirement for being an appliable linguistics. This volume
demonstrates what can be done in the field and its considerable potential."
Frances Christie, Emeritus Professor of Language and Literacy Education at
the University of Melbourne, Australia and Honorary Professor at the
University of Sydney, Australia

This collection of research offers an initial step in the pursuit of an
appliable linguistics. Appliable Linguistics takes everyday real-life
language-related problems - both theoretical and practical - in diverse
social, professional and academic contexts as its starting point. It then
uses and contributes to a theoretical model of language that can respond to
and is appliable in the context. The concept of appliable linguistics used
in this volume is informed by the work of M.A.K. Halliday, who believes
that "the value of a theory lies in the use that can be made of it." The
chapters in this volume thus use and contribute to an appliable linguistics
that engages with a range of issues including: translation, education,
language teaching/learning, multimodality, media, social policy and action,
and positive discourse analysis. This collection of research is offered as
an initial step in the pursuit of Appliable Linguistics, which we hope will
serve as a foundation for future work across the discipline.
