Meeting Description: 

The Symposium on Connecting Paths: Lamb, Halliday and Hason will be held at City
University of Hong Kong on 1 November 2010 and Sun Yat-sen University on 3
November 2010. It will discuss the potential for interconnectivity between the
theories developed by the three significant scholars in linguistics and language
studies: Professor Sydney M Lamb, Professor M.A.K. Halliday and Professor
Ruqaiya Hasan.

The Symposium aims not only to highlight the individual contribution to
linguistics theories by each of the three professors, but also to explore new
path connections for collaborative research. The Symposium will not only
describe the complementary nature of these three approaches, but also engaging
participants in the activity of connecting these paths. The Symposium is
expected to enhance the intellectual image of the Department among local and
international academia in linguistics and language studies. 
The below lists some possible topics to be discussed during the Symposium:

1. What relationships exist between SFG (Systemic Functional Grammar) and
relational networks? Is there the possibility to build a bridge connecting the
two theories?
2. To what extent can SFG be said to be neurologically plausible or
operationally plausible?
3. Can we find any definite relationships between the semiotic realm and the
physical realm? Is there a physical basis for the semiotic realm?

Paper presentations are by invitation only but we welcome scholars, researchers
and those interested to attend the Symposium and join the discussion with our
