In the following sections, we will briefly introduce Chinese SFL work in the areas of discourse analysis, cohesion and coherence, grammatical metaphor, stylistics and foreign language teaching. Then we will go on to look at Halliday’s own work on the Chinese language and its influence and end up with a short discussion of problems and prospects for SFL studies in China.
