Modelling The Relation Of Semiotic To Material Systems

Halliday & Matthiessen (1999: 439):
…this does not mean that, from our standpoint, it does not make sense to model the steps that relate semiotic systems to material ones.  It does; but the relationship has to be modelled in such a way that we can show how people as biological organisms and socio-semiotic persons interact with their material environment.
