Abstract

This paper discusses the application of systemic-functional semiotics in the analysis of visual materials, and, specifically, presents an original systemic-functional model that is intended to facilitate both the analysis and synthesis of drawings in a cross-cultural context. The model is explained as developing from Michael O’Toole’s systemic-functional semiotic model for painting (O'TOOLE, 2011) itself an adaptation of Michael Halliday’s systemic-functional semiotic model for language (HALLIDAY, 1973 , HALLIDAY, 1978, HALLIDAY, 1985)
