This chapter sketches the various approaches to the stratal organization of language within the SFL family of models. These include the Sydney and Cardiff grammars, but also the work of Gregory, Martin and others on discourse and contextual levels. The goal is a characterization of the common core as well as of the variety of views with respect to strata and relationships between them.
