Abstract: 

Using Michael Hallidays (1994) model f functional grammar, this paper reports on the findings from a large corpus-based study of scientific research articles all of which were published en English in 2001. The corpus comprises the Introduction and Conclusion sections of 100 scientific research articles from 10 disciplines, five from the social and five from the natural sciences.The texts have been analyzed quantitatively with respect to the realization of interpersonal grammatical metaphor, an aspect of the lexico-grammatical structure lf written discourse which has not been as thoroughly investigated as have other components of the Hallidayan model. The paper will present quantitative findings the realization of interpersonal grammatical metaphor in research introductions and conclusions a) within a particular research field, b) across research fields, and c) between the social and natural sciences. The analyses will show that the social sciences represent significantly more instances of interpersonal grammatical metaphor, Implications will be drawn for the Hallidayan model.
