Abstract

Phraseology is now taking centre stage in a wide range of fields. However, there are still relatively few empirical studies of word combinations in the domain of law and in the many different contexts where legal discourse is used. This recent explosion of interest has undoubtedly been sparked off by the development of corpus linguistics research and this special issue presents some of the latest developments in the study of this linguistic phenomenon from a corpus-based perspective. The aim of this special issue is to take stock of current research in corpus-based legal phraseology from a variety of perspectives: translational, comparative/contrastive, terminological and lexicographical. All the papers are multilingual, featuring different legal systems and legal languages. They provide in-depth corpus-informed analyses and case studies. The articles collected in this issue bring some further support to the broad conceptualisation of phraseology in LSP studies and highlight new ways in which phraseologisms can be investigated. This special issue can be of use not only for linguists interested in phraseology but also for lawyers and legal scholars, translators, lexicographers, terminologists as well as students who wish to pursue research in the area.
