Reading, Writing, and Rhetoric: An Inquiry into the Art of Legal Language.
Ranney, Frances J.
Business Communication Quarterly, v62 n2 p104-08 Jun 1999
Describes research creating a feminist, rhetorical analysis of legal language by examining in detail both the "Plain English" and the "Law and Literature" movements. Examines legal texts that construct the "reasonable woman," asking how that hypothetical legal subject is construed by judicial discourse and what its impact may be on everyday interactions in the workplace.
