The Legal Language of Scottish Burghs

This is an interlude between the theoretical linguistic part and the historical background of the project. The short summary of the first part of the book draws attention again to the relationship between law and language, and to the functional framework which is employed to interpret the corpus data in the final part of the book. It stresses the need to review the extralinguistic circumstances in which the legal texts were created, before the actual analysis of the findings is performed. In this manner, the reader is aided in relating the functional linguistic framework to the legal discourse of medieval and early modern Scottish burghs.

Keywords:   legal discourse, functionalism, repetition, idiom principle, lexical bundles, interdisciplinarity
