Experiential Metafunctional Analysis of Winston S. Churchill's "Speech on Hitler's Invasion of the U.S.S.R."
Liping, Chen
English Language Teaching, v7 n9 p132-136 2014
According to Halliday, it is language that enables human beings to form the impression of experience, which consists of "goings-on"--happening, doing, sensing, meaning and being and becoming, either internally and externally. This is the experiential metafunction. With the focus on Transitivity, a political discourse has been studied from the perspective of Experiential Function. More uses of material and relational processes can make the speech more powerful and persuasive.
