Description

This biographical sketch of Professor M. A. K. Halliday’s early years, 1925–1970, has been compiled from two sources: (i) a previously unpublished interview conducted with Professor Halliday in 1987 by Gunther Kress, Jim Martin and Ruqaiya Hasan; (ii) ‘M. A. K. Halliday’ in   Keith Brown and Vivien Law (eds) Linguistics in Britain   personal histories , Publications of the Philological Society, 36, 2002, pp 116–26. Although rendered here in third person, the narrative attempts as much as possible to adhere to Halliday’s own wording as found in the above mentioned sources.
