The Halliday Centre Series in Appliable Linguistics


In 2007, HCLS reached an agreement with the Commercial Press, Beijing, on the publication of "The Halliday Centre Series in Appliable Linguistics". The publication of the series has been designed to promote its visibility in the targeted areas of appliable linguistics and language technology. It will demonstrate that, through publications of international scholarship under the name of the Centre, the University not only enjoys a prominent standing in eastern Asia but is also a strategic player internationally in linguistic studies as well as practical applications.

The first volume of "The Halliday Centre Series in Appliable Linguistics" - Complementarities in Language written by Professor M.A.K. Halliday - was published in July 2008. The second volume - Deploying Functional Grammar - co-authored by Professor J. R. Martin, Professor Christian M. I. M. Matthiessen, and Dr. Clare Painter was published March 2010. This book is a revised edition of Working with Functional Grammar - a workbook designed to teach and practise a wide range of grammatical analyses provided by Professor M.A.K. Halliday in his Introduction to Functional Grammar.

It is believed that the publication of the series will have a profound impact on the future development of the Centre and enhance the profile of the University.

The Collected Works of M.A.K. Halliday Volumes 1 - 10


For nearly half a century Michael Halliday has been enriching the discipline of linguistics with his keen insight into the social semiotic phenomenon we call language. Now, for the first time, Halliday's collected works are available as a ten-volume set.

As a self-styled 'generalist' Michael Halliday has published in many branches of linguistics, both theoretical and applied, including grammar and semantics, discourse analysis and stylistics, phonology, sociolinguistics, computational linguistics, language education and child language development. This ten-volume set encompasses all of these aspects of Halliday's work.

Volume 1: On Grammar (2005)
Volume 2: Linguistic Studies of Text and Discourse (2006)
Volume 3: On Language and Linguistics(2006)
Volume 4: Language of Early Childhood (2006)
Volume 5: Language of Science (2006)
Volume 6: Computational and Quantitative Studies (2006)
Volume 7: Studies in English Language (2005)

Meaning in Context: Implementing Intelligent Applications of Language Studies




A Symposium on "Meaning in Context: Implementing Intelligent Applications of Language Studies" was held in March 2006 to mark the official launch of the Centre. A book under the editorship of Professor Jonathan Webster was published in April 2008 by Continuum as a complete collection of the papers presented at the Symposium. The book, entitled "Meaning in Context: Implementing Intelligent "Applications of Language Studies", collects some of the biggest names in systemic functional linguistics in one volume, and shows how this theory can be applied to language studies 'intelligently', in order to arrive at a better understanding of how meaning is constructed in language.

Continuing Discourse on Language Volumes 1 & 2


The two volume set Continuing Discourse on Language offers the reader a selective account of the evolution of important aspects of Halliday's Systemic Functional Linguistics over the last couple of decades. The range of topics covered includes not only certain fundamental concepts at the level of theory but also an 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 these two volumes 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, the two volumes together provide 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.
