Title: Studies in Chinese Language
Written By: Michael A. K. Halliday
Edited By: Jonathan J. Webster
Description:

Studies in Chinese Language, the eighth volume in the collected works of
Professor M.A.K. Halliday, approaches the Chinese language from several
interesting vantage points, ranging from studies of medieval to modern
grammar, and also covering topics related to Chinese phonology, grammar and
discourse. Professor Halliday’s PhD thesis provided the basis for the first
paper in this volume, "The Language of the Chinese 'Secret History of the
Mongols'" (with examples from the book on CD-ROM). The final section on
"Grammar and discourse" includes papers looking at grammatical metaphor and
scientific discourse in both Chinese and English.
