This talk is part of a series to accompany An Introduction to Functional Grammar, by MAK Halliday and CMIM Matthiessen. This talk describes the dimensions of language in Halliday's systemic functional theory. Halliday calls these "working assumptions" or "hypotheses" that enabled him "to formulate, and begin to explore a broad variety of questions concerning language" (Halliday 2003: 1) I introduce here the concepts of:
1. structure, syntagmatic order and the rank scale
2. system, or the paradigmatic order
3. stratification and realization
