Last updated:2013-07-05

The M.A.K. Halliday Library, Sun Yat-sen University, bears the name of the world-renowned linguist, Professor M.A.K. Halliday. M.A.K. Halliday is the founder of Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL), a major theory of language utilised widely across China and other parts of the world. For over half a century Professor Halliday has continued to develop and enrich this theory, and we are particularly honoured to have this library named after him. 
The M.A.K. Halliday Library comprises books from the broad area of functional linguistics, with a special focus on Systemic Functional Linguistics, and it aims to become the biggest resource centre in the world for Systemic Functional Linguistics. 

The Library sponsors an international, peer-reviewed journal Functional Linguistics, published under the SpringerOpen brand.
