"Legal Language": Varieties, Genres, Registers, Discourses.
Kurzon, Dennis
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v7 n2 p119-39 1997
Analyzes classification of "legal language," clarifying terms such as "variety,""genre,""register," and "discourse," and related issues in languages for special purposes, particularly as they apply to professions. Argues that "genre," not "register," is the most appropriate term for legal language, and that study of legal discourse should focus on this. (MSE)
