MENENDEZ, Salvio Martín. Option, Register and Context: The concept of Meaning in Systemic Functional Linguistics. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2010, n.23, pp. 221-239. ISSN 1665-1200.
Systemic functional linguistics (Halliday, 2003 ) is based on the conception that language is a potential of meaning that is represented in different systems of options. In this work we will analyze the range of the different aspects of meaning that permit relating it with grammar, register and gender. Each of these interdependent concepts will be characterized starting from the meaning that they bear and we will propose an analysis of a representative corpus to prove its effective functioning.
