AESLA’s 2021 Book Award goes to a joint volume by Teresa Fanego and Paula Rodríguez-Puente

 

Teresa Fanego and Paula Rodríguez-Puente have obtained the AESLA 2021 Book Award (‘Premio de Investigación Rafael Monroy 2021 de la Asociación Española de Lingüística Aplicada’) for the volume Corpus-based Research on Variation in English Legal Discourse (Studies in Corpus Linguistics 91, Amsterdam:  John Benjamins, 2019; viii + 294 pp. ISBN 978 9027202352).

Corpus-based Research on Variation in English Legal Discourse provides a comprehensive overview of the research carried out over the past thirty years in the vast field of legal discourse. The focus is on how such research has been influenced and shaped by developments in corpus linguistics and register analysis, and by the emergence from the mid 1990s of historical pragmatics as a branch of pragmatics concerned with the scrutiny of historical texts in their context of writing.
