Field Typology

Halliday & Matthiessen (1999: 322): 
… a full account of field would include a typology of the possible first and second order values that occur in a culture. Such a typology would show how closely various fields are related — how they form families. So, given three different fields, 1, 2, and 3, the typology will show three different ways of deploying the ideation base.
