In this paper, I introduce some of the basic guidelines of Appraisal Theory (Iedema et al. 1994, Martin 2000, White 2003), a relatively recent development in the study of evaluation in language. This approach attempts to describe and explain the different systems of semantic options that may be used to evaluate, adopt stances, negotiate relationships, construct textual personas and naturalize ideological positions. More particularly, it is concerned with the language of attitude and emotion, and with the resources used to signal how the terms of the speaker's engagement vary with the utterances. Located within the framework of systemic functional linguistics (Halliday 1994) and based on Bakhtin's (1981) related notions of dialogism and heteroglossia, Appraisal Theory seems to be a valuable theoretical and analytic tool with which to conduct research on evaluation in language from a holistic perspective.
