TWO NEW TITLES FROM Continuum - available now

Volume 1 in the Collected Works of M.A.K. Halliday

ON GRAMMAR
M.A.K. Halliday
Edited by Jonathan J. Webster

For nearly half a century, Professor M.A.K. Halliday has been
enriching the discipline of linguistics with his keen insight into
this social semiotic phenomenon we call language.  This is the first
volume in a series presenting the collected works of Professor
M.A.K. Halliday.  This first volume contains seventeen papers,
including a new piece entitled "a personal perspective", in which
Professor Halliday offers his own perspective on language and
linguistic theory as covered in his collected works.  The first part
presents early papers (1957-1966) on basic concepts such as category,
structure, class, and rank.The second part highlights how over the
span of two decades (mid-sixties to mid-eighties) Halliday developed
systemic theory to account for linguistic phenomena extending upward
through the ranks from word to clause to text.  The third part
includes more recent work in which Halliday discusses the issues
confronting those who would study linguistics, or as Firth described
it "language turned back on itself".

M A K Halliday was born in Yorkshire in 1925.  He was trained in Chinese for
war service with the British army; studied in China, taught Chinese in
Britain for a number of years, then moved into linguistics, becoming in 1965
Professor of General Linguistics at University College London.  In 1975 he
was appointed Foundation Professor of Linguistics at the University of
Sydney, where he remained until his retirement.  He has taught as Visiting
Professor in many countries and has honorary degrees from universities in
Australia, Britain, Canada, China, France, Greece and India.  As a
self-styled "generalist" he has published in many branches of linguistics,
both theoretical and applied (a distinction which he himself rejects),
including grammar and semantics, discourse analysis and stylistics,
phonology, sociolinguistics, computational linguistics, language education
and child language development.  The volumes in the present series encompass
all these aspects of Halliday's work.
