Qs: The Language of Economics

Editor for this issue: Zac Smith <zaclinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

For my MA, I am working on the analysis of the economic jargon in the
British, business-oriented press.

I need some hints or guidelines on how to approach this. I have certain
ideas like studying etymology, juxtapositions based on the semantic
representations or word formation processes, borrowings, etc. But how
should I gather it to make any sense?

Thanks you.
