Verbal Form Variation in Sublanguages
Message 1: Verbal Form Variation in Sublanguages
From: Eugenia Eumeridou <evmoiricsd.aegean.gr>
Subject: Verbal Form Variation in Sublanguages
I would like to ask if there has been any recent work on sublanguage/genre
or text type discrimination on the basis of verbal form (both finite and
non-finite forms)or if there has been recent work referring to verb form
distribution i.e. which are the most frequent tenses or verb forms etc. in
specific special languages. I am particularly interested in the legal,
commercial, computing or science special language in general.
I am aware of the work by Sager Sager, J.C. Dungworth, D. and McDonald,
P.F. 1980. English Special Languages. Wiebaden: Brandstetter Verlag. but
I wonder if there is anything more recent on the subject,
Thank you in advance.
