This book is a record of modes and practices in the use of language within the context of law. The papers in this volume not only examine the different situations that arise in legal processes, but they also unveil the inherent problems and impact of ambiguity and distortion in the uses of legal language, the consequences of cultural constraints on translation of legal texts, the power of interpreters in legal testimony and sources of complexity in legal register. The book examines the nexus between language and the law in various countries and cultures.
