Law Lessons for Linguists? Accountability and Acts of Professional Classification.
Hutton, Christopher
Language & Communication, v16 n3 p205-14 Jul 1996
Discusses whether linguistics can meet the challenge of accounting to the general public for the practices and beliefs of lawyers and other professionals. The article emphasizes that members of the professions, such as lawyers, doctors, and psychiatrists, are judged by their interaction with processes having real world outcomes, e.g., trials and operations.
