Interior Vs Exterior Symbolic Processing: Addressee

Halliday & Matthiessen (1999: 130):
Figures of saying construe the addressee of exterior symbolic processing in the form of a participant, the Receiver, as in She told/asked/commanded him…; She said to him / asked of him…. In contrast, interior symbolic processing cannot be addressed; figures of sensing cannot be configured with a Receiver.
