Title: Meaning in Context
Subtitle: Implementing Intelligent Applications of Language Studies
Edited By: Jonathan J. Webster
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

'Meaning in Context' 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. The chapters use
systemic functional theory to examine a range of issues including corpus
linguistics, multimodality, language technology, world Englishes and
language evolution.

This forward-thinking volume will be of interest to researchers in applied
linguistics and systemic functional linguistics.

"Not many linguistics put their theory on the line and purposefully
re/design it for the applications it needs to serve. This group of scholars
does so, par excellence, across such diverse arenas as education, computer
science, language policy and medicine. East meets West in a series of
insightful discussions befitting the launch of the Halliday Centre for
Intelligent Applications of Language Studies at City University Hong Kong."
-Professor J. R. Martin, University of Sydney, Australia
