Abstract:

This volume contributes to the latest studies in legal discourse studies bypresenting a descriptive and interpretive analysis of English legal genresused in academic and professional writing contexts. The results ofcorpora-driven data are discussed through (meta)discourse, genre and othertheoretical perspectives, and offer insights into the ways the writers’discursive practices and meanings shape their membership to the legalcommunity and discipline. The volume attempts to show these ideas insystematic and clear language, and is designed for native and non-nativereaders whether involved in English applied linguistic research ordisciplinary English writing instruction.
