Stratal Perspectives On Meaning: Extra-Stratal (Relation Between Language And Non-Semiotic Systems)

Halliday & Matthiessen (1999: 438-9):
a theory may focus on how language in general and semantics in particular relate to systems of other kinds, i.e. to non-semiotic systems. We have already discussed the way in which this focus has been built into transcendent approaches to meaning, where meaning is ‘exported’ into the realms of the material world or the mind.
