This books identifies the important differences between speaking and writing. Halliday leads the reader from the development of speech in infancy, through an account of writing systems, to a comparative treatment of spoken and written language, contrasting the prosodic features and
grammatical intricacy of speech with the high lexical density and grammatical metaphor or writing.
