Description

For nearly half a century, Professor M. A. K. Halliday has been enriching the discipline of linguistics with his keen insights into the social semiotic phenomenon we call language. This ten-volume series presents the seminal works of Professor Halliday. This fourth volume contains sixteen papers that look at the development of early childhood language. They are presented in three parts: infancy and protolanguage; the transition from child tongue to mother tongue; and early language and learning. The sociolinguistic account of the early development of the mother tongue presented by Professor Halliday is based on his intensive study of the language of one particular child, Nigel, for the period from nine- to eighteen months. The complete 'Nigel Transcripts' are included as a CD with this volume.

Author Biography

M. A. K. Halliday is Emeritus Professor at the University of Sydney. As a self-styled 'generalist' he has published in many branches of linguistics, both theoretical and applied. The volumes in this series encompass these aspects of Halliday's work.
