Abstract:

A linguistic approach to legal texts offers some perspective about interpretive possibilities for contested technical terms. This text-and-discourse oriented approach is particularly illuminating for the analysis of communication between international and national laws, because here the linguistic constitution of facticity is often fought over with increasing intensity: this work investigates the processes of negotiation in nation-state sovereignty and shifts in legal competence based on a typology of speech acts. Verbally cluttered lines of conflict, which are characterized as semantic conflicts, are here emphasized in the processes of harmonizing national law and international law. The custody battle of "Görgulu" serves as an example of the problems in lines of communication. Through the investigation of technical discourses and their transformation in medial texts, the problem of communication can be exposed, which helps to promote transparency in the representation of facticity as conceived by state supported legal systems.
