Because the development of protolanguage is founded upon these two domains of prelinguistic experience (the intersubjective, the objective) and these two social modes of consciousness (action, reflection), it emerges neither in the form of a single symbol nor even a simple inventory of signs, but rather as a paradigm of alternatives. 1, the intersection of each mode of consciousness with each domain of experience creates a semantic space with four possible ways of meaning, which Halliday terms the 'regulatory', 'instrumental', 'interpersonal' and 'personal' 'microfunctions'.
However, the metaphor sits much less comfortably with Halliday's view, which is of language as an infinite, variable, dynamic resource for meaning, which can continue to develop indefinitely and which is 'constructed and maintained interactively' (Halliday forthcoming). In the following section, a brief account will be given of the SFL interpretation of the ontogenesis of language, in order to illustrate these various aspects of Halliday's view of language. i Developing'protolanguage' The social-interactive origins of language are emphasized in Halliday's account of language development, which can be linked to the studies of neonatal behaviour discussed earlier.
However, while these approaches do foreground the fact that language is used to act in the world, they may be hampered by building on a model which sees language in terms of the individual's knowledge. As discussed earlier, in those models of language which have developed from a Chomskyan generative model, the linguistic system itself is conceived of as a set of rules which define structural descriptions of sentences. These may be rules of syntax, defining sentences in terms of combinations of classes of units, such as NP, VP; or more semantically oriented rules, defining allowable configurations of such structural functions as agent, instrument, affected, etc.
