Description

The eighth volume of the Collected Works of M.A.K. Halliday series. Studies in Chinese Language, the eighth volume in the collected works of Professor M.A.K. Halliday, approaches the Chinese language from several interesting vantage points, ranging from studies of medieval to modern grammar, and also covering topics related to Chinese phonology, grammar and discourse. Professor Halliday's PhD thesis provided the basis for the first paper in this volume, 'The Language of the Chinese Secret History of the Mongols' (with examples from the book on CD-ROM). The final section on grammar and discourse includes papers looking at grammatical metaphor and scientific discourse in both Chinese and English.
