    Project Details

    Description (abstract)

    The project aims at describing stylistic changes in medical English in a long diachronic perspective in a multifaceted sociohistorical framework: in addition to anchoring texts in their generic and sociolinguistic context, we study linguistic phenomena in relation to scientific ideologies. For our research material, we are compiling a computer-readable Corpus of Early English Medical Writing.
