URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11187
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication, Volume 47
Description:

This book presents a number of different perspectives on the central theme
of 'evidence' and its interpretation in the study of specialist languages
and their various uses. The principal topics include text corpora, citation
patterns, some challenging dichotomies, terminology and knowledge
management, and specialist translation. Each topic is presented in one of
five parts, each with its own introduction. The volume includes
contributions from established and new researchers in the field, as well as
well-known scholars from other disciplines who bring a fresh eye to LSP
studies. The book presents selected papers from LSP2003, the 14th European
Symposium on Language for Special Purposes held at the University of
Surrey, Guildford, in co-operation with the AILA Scientific Commission on
Language for Special Purposes.
