Dear T. Givon:

I am very happy to have got your Transitivitiy discussion suggestion
list. It seems to me that Halliday's transitivity is running controrary
to the communicative pragmatics. From his analysis of the Inheritors, we
see that he is mainly concerned with the typological or textual aspect.
I want to hear some of your ideas on it. What do you mean by saying
typological or textual ? What is the concrete means that could lead to
the analysis of the communicative pragmatics of transitivity, which runs
conterpart with the former typological or textual meas?

Could you tell me some journals on the use of transitivity?
