Abstract:

This volume contributes to the latest studies in legal discourse studies by
presenting a descriptive and interpretive analysis of English legal genres
used in academic and professional writing contexts. The results of
corpora-driven data are discussed through (meta)discourse, genre and other
theoretical perspectives, and offer insights into the ways the writers’
discursive practices and meanings shape their membership to the legal
community and discipline. The volume attempts to show these ideas in
systematic and clear language, and is designed for native and non-native
readers whether involved in English applied linguistic research or
disciplinary English writing instruction.
