'This volume brings together a varied collection of papers exemplifying an 'appliable linguistics' one that illuminates the many ways language is used. Language, as Halliday has frequently asserted, has evolved in the human species as a fundamental resource with which we build and negotiate relationships, shape experience and deal with the many issues and challenges of life. Though other linguistic theories might be used, it is systemic functional linguistic theory that is shown in this volume to best meet the requirement for being an appliable linguistics. This volume demonstrates what can be done in the field and its considerable potential. '--,
