Abstract: Experiential metafunction also known as reflective metafunction is one of the three metafunctions of language proposed by M.A.K. Halliday. This metafunction is used to convey new information or content unknown to listeners. Thereby, people's experience of the world around as well as in the speakers themselves is expressed. Based on the system function theory of M. A. K. Halliday, the modes of expressing experiential functions in the discourse of the Vietnamese revolutionary lyrics in the period from 1954 to 1975 are analyzed and investigated. This is to determine the authors linguistic strategies in organizing the messages through the transition system. Besides, the relationship between language and thought is also clarified.
