Title: Writing Styles in Malaysian Travel Magazines
By: Majidah Hashim

Abstract:

This study brings together three primary linguistic understandings, namely Halliday’s concept on Social Semiotics, Labov’s Fully Developed Natural Narrative, and Halliday’s Textual Metafunction. Supported by five features of style – typography, ellipsis, intertextuality, narrative structures and literary devices – the conceptual framework derived a number of linguistic conclusions that characterise travel writing.
