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


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.
