Example text

Such devices and conventions effectively serve to convey a particular worldview by way of excluding competing visions, and the resulting hegemonic worldview endorses particular power relationships. Generic analysis must relate the structure/morphology of genres to their (socio-political) function of power distribution. Underlying this conceptualisation of the relationship between genres and the social order are the claims made above that ‘social institutions and text types are mutually defining’ (Stubbs, 1996: 12) and broadly that the whole social order is textually mediated (Fairclough, 2000: 164–165).

The former views interpretation as: [ . . ] a matter of empirical knowledge of either the objective meaning of statutory texts or the subjective intention of the legislature . . the aim of legal interpretation is . . the discovering of this pre-existing meaning or intention, already in legal texts. (Guastini, 1984: 1739) By contrast, the latter considers that: [ . . ] words have no proper meaning, since every word may bear the meaning put upon it by the user, or the meaning put upon it by the recipient, and no coincidence between the former and the latter is granted .

Consequently, it is necessary to investigate the more area-specific knowledge-determined context of expertise, which presides over the selection/construction of objects and categories such as ‘official and working languages’ in EU language policy (Foucault, 1972; quoted in Fairclough, 1992: Chapter 2 and p. 128). Yet, this meso-level approach must be considered within the ‘macro-’ historical/socio-political context of meaning-making – the order of discourse – which determines the array of norms governing the construction of legal meanings.
