This book examines legal language as a language for special
purposes, evaluating the functions and characteristics of legal
language and the terminology of law. Using examples drawn from
major and lesser legal languages, it examines the major legal
languages themselves, beginning with Latin through German, French,
Spanish and English.This second edition has been fully revised,
updated and enlarged. A new chapter on legal Spanish takes into
account the increasing importance of the language, and a new
section explores the use (in legal circles) of the two variants of
the Norwegian language. All chapters have been thoroughly updated
and include more detailed footnote referencing.The work will be a
valuable resource for students, researchers, and practitioners in
the areas of legal history and theory, comparative law, semiotics,
and linguistics. It will also be of interest to legal translators
