Abstract:

This book is the first to combine interests in two currently popular 
approaches to language description, both of which are based on the 
observation of naturally-occurring, as opposed to invented, language. 
Systemic Functional Linguistics is a theory that focuses on meaning, choice 
and probability in language and on language as a social phenomenon. 
Corpus Linguistics is a practice, rather than a theory: a corpus is a large 
collection of texts that are used as the basis for language description. It is 
natural that SFL should turn to corpora as a source of information about 
grammatical preference, probability and variety, and some of the papers in 
this collection explore this dimension of the interaction between system and 
corpus. Conversely, corpus linguists have made generalisations about 
language that contextualize but also challenge the theories of SFL. Some of 
the papers in the collection expand on this theme. A concluding paper by 
M.A.K. Halliday responds to the issues raised. The book will therefore be of 
interest to students and researchers involved in either of these two 
influential topics in linguistics.
