Abstract:

'Continuing Discourse on Language' is published as a two volume set and
offers the reader a selective account of the evolution of important aspects
of M.A.K Halliday's Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) over the last
couple of decades.  The range of topics covered includes not only certain
fundamental concepts at the level of theory but also a account of the wide
range of applications enabled by the descriptive framework that the theory
has generated.  Given its acclaimed perspective on language as social
semiotic, SFL has always located semiotic activity in relation to human
life: in the chapters of this book internationally recognised authors
attempt to show the ways in which SFL relates to recent research on
cognition, on socio-cultural contexts, and in computational linguistics.  A
theory is only as good as the description and application it enables:
conceptualising the relations of theory and practice as a dialectic, SFL
has created a framework for the analysis of language from the level of
cultural context to that of the media for semiotic expressions. 
'Continuing Discourse on Language' gives the reader an insight into the
continuing evolution of the impressive range of frames of description and
their applications: from typology to multi-modality, from models of
discourse analysis to translation and stylistics, from the role of language
in knowledge construal to language education, genre based pedagogy and web
based learning, this collection provides a rich resource for students and
researchers in language study for understanding, practicing and applying a
linguistics keenly aware of the role of language in social life.
