Abstract:

This volume reflects the results of a workshop on the investigation of
specialized discourse in a diachronic perspective, held within the 15th
European Symposium on Language for Special Purposes ('New Trends in
Specialized Discourse', Bergamo 2005). The articles deal with developments
from the late medieval period to the present day, and the book encompasses
studies in which the long-established tradition of domain-specific English
is highlighted.

The fields of contributions range from scientific to legal to political and
business discourse. Special attention is given to argumentation, in an
attempt to assess the time-depth of typical rhetorical strategies. Some
methodological innovations are introduced in corpus linguistics. Numerous
contributions bring new materials to scholarly discussion, as recently
released or in-progress 'second-generation' corpora are used as data.
Recent changes in present-day legal and scientific writing are also
discussed as they witness fast adaptation to new requirements, due to the
advent and growing familiarity of new technologies, international law and
changes in academia.
