Legal Discourse: Studies in Linguistics, Rhetoric and Legal Analysis
Foyalty 132

Legal Discourse: Studies in Linguistics, Rhetoric and Legal Analysis (Paperback)

£44.00
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

Lawyers and the law have long been the object of popular criticism and satire for the obscurity and incomprehensibility of their language. Legal Discourse provides a novel historical and systematic account of the language of the legal institution together with a sustained criticism of legal exegesis and `legalese' more generally. In the first part of the work the doctrinal history of the legal discipline and its concepts of language, text and sign are examined and assessed. In the second part the contemporary disciples of linguistics, discourse analysis and communication studies are brought to bear upon the task of constructing a theory of legal discourse as a linguistics of legal power.
