On grammar by M. A. K Halliday( )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. This first volume contains seventeen papers, including a new chapter entitled 'A Personal Perspective', in which Halliday offers his own current perspective on language and linguistic theory. The first part of the book presents early papers (1957-66) on basic concepts such as system, structure, class and rank. The second part highlights how, over the span of two decades (the 1960s to mid-1980s), Halliday developed systemic theory to account for linguistic phenomena extending upward through the ranks from word to clause to text. The last part, 'Construing and Abstracting', includes more recent work, in which Halliday discusses the issues confronting those who study linguistics, using Firth's description of linguistics - 'language turned back on itself'
Meaning in context : implementing intelligent applications of language studies by Jonathan Webster( )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Meaning in Context collects some of the biggest names in systemic functional linguistics in one volume, and shows how this theory can be applied to language studies 'intelligently', in order to arrive at a better understanding of how meaning is constructed in language. The chapters use systemic functional theory to examine a range of issues including corpus linguistics, multimodality, language technology, world Englishes and language evolution. This volume will be of interest to researchers in applied linguistics and systemic functional linguistics."--BOOK JACKET

Understanding verbal art : a functional linguistic approach by Jonathan Webster( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book applies linguistic analysis to the poetry of Emeritus Professor Edwin Thumboo, a Singaporean poet and leading figure in Commonwealth literature. The work explores how the poet combines grammar and metaphor to make meaning, making the reader aware of the linguistic resources developed by Thumboo as the basis for his unique technique. The author approaches the poems from a functional linguistic perspective, investigating the multiple layers of meaning and metaphor which go into producing these highly textured, grammatically intricate works of verbal art. The approach is based on Systematic Functional Theory, which assists with investigating how the poet uses language (grammar) to craft his text, in a playful way that reflects a love of the language. The multilingual and multicultural experiences of the poet are seen to have contributed to his uniquely creative use of language. This work demonstrates how Systematic Functional Theory, with its emphasis on exploring the semogenic (meaning-making) power of language, provides the handle we need to better understand poetic works as intentional acts of meaning. The verbal art of Edwin Thumboo illustrate Barthes' point that "Bits of code, formulae, rhythmic models, fragments of social languages, etc. pass into the text and are redistributed within it, for there is always language before and around the text." With a focus on meaning, this functional analysis of poetry offers an insightful look at the linguistic basis of Edwin Thumboo's poetic technique. The work will appeal to scholars with an interest in linguistic analysis and poetry from the Commonwealth and new literatures, and it is also well suited to support courses on literary stylistics or text linguistics
Linguistic studies of text and discourse by M. A. K Halliday( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusses "on the application of systemic functional grammar to the analysis of texts, both literary and everyday, written and spoken. Through detailed linguistic analyses of specific texts, ranging from the highly valued by such authors as William Golding, J.B. Priestly, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Charles Darwin, to the more everyday, such as a fund-raising letter and part of a doctoral defence, Halliday explores the power of grammar to create meaning, to change our lives for better or worse. Each text is studied, as one would study any kind of language, in terms of the linguistic resources that contribute to the realization of its "meaning potential". The analyses are not only interesting for what they reveal about the texts under investigation, but also instructive about the practice and methods of systemic grammar analysis"--back cover
Aspects of language and learning by M. A. K Halliday( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is based on a series of lectures, which begin with a look at the history of the language that we use in order to encode our knowledge, particularly our scientific knowledge, i.e., the history of scientific English. Prof. M.A.K. Halliday poses the question of how a growing child comes to master this kind of language and put it to his or her own use as a means of learning. In subsequent chapters, Halliday explores the relationship between language, education and culture, again taking the language of science as the focal point for the discussion; and finally he draws these various themes together to construct a linguistic interpretation of how we learn, and how we learn how to learn."--Back cover
