Harry Potter was supposed to be a series of children's literature whose author J.K. Rowling narrated a year's experience and personalities of the characters in ever-changing circumstances. As an encyclopedia consisting of world experience, the novel included a wide range of human activities of most transitivity types. This paper was trying to carry out a functional stylistic study on the Owls in Harry Potter with the aim of discovering their characteristics based on Halliday's systemic functional linguistics.
