Abstract:

This volume reflects the latest work of scholars specialising in the
linguistic and legal aspects of normative texts across languages (English,
Danish, French, Italian, Spanish) and law systems. Like other domains of
specialised language use, legal discourse is subject to the converging
pressures of internationalisation and of emerging practices that
destabilise well-established norms and routines. In an integrated,
interdependent context, supranational laws, rules and procedures are
gradually developed and harmonised to regulate issues that can no longer be
dealt with by national laws alone, as in the case of the European Union.
The contributors discuss the impact of such developments on the
construction, evolution and hybridisation of legal texts, analysed both
linguistically and from the practitioner's standpoint.
