This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
Linguistik rechtlicher Normgenese [Linguistics of Legal Norm Formation]
Theorie der Rechtsnormdiskursivität am Beispiel der Online-Durchsuchung
The analysis of legal texts in the context of legislation is a previously unexplored field of research. Consequently, this study examines the formation of legal norms using the example of the “online search”. Taking over 1000 texts as reference material, the study illuminates the discourse actors, the semantic struggles and the process of legal textual formulation involved in the legislation.
