Legislative Writing: A Case of Neglect in EA/OLP Courses.
Bhatia, V. K.
English for Specific Purposes, v8 n3 p223-38 1989
An overview of the English for Academic/Occupational Purposes (EA/OLP) situation focuses on the recent preoccupation with using simplified, abridged versions of legal cases in many of the available EA/OLP programs to the neglect of legislative use of language. The neglect or overemphasis of either approach will decrease learners' legal language proficiency. (20 references) (Author/CB)
