Annotation

For centuries people have recognised the importance of language in creating and applying law. This edited volume shows scholars and students how modern linguistics and related fields contribute to understanding the role language plays, and what follows from viewing law's power as a matter of situated communication in specific social relations rather than an abstract system of rules.
