Title: The Phraseology of Administrative French
Subtitle: A Corpus-based Study
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=LC+57
Series Title: Language and Computers 57
Description:

The French administrative language of the European Union is an emerging
discourse: it is only fifty years old, and has its origins in the French
administrative register of the middle of the twentieth century, but it is
also a unique contact situation in which translation has always played a
pivotal role. Using the methodology of corpus linguistics, and a specially
compiled corpus of texts, covering a range of genres, this book describes
the current discourse of EU French from the perspective of phraseology and
collocational patterning, and in particular in comparison with its French
national counterpart. Corpus methodology and an inclusive notion of
phraseology, embracing typical formulae, 'locutions', and patterning around
keywords, reveal subtleties and patterns which otherwise remain hidden, and
point to a discourse of EU French whose novel context of production has led
it to be phraseologically conservative, compared with the administrative
French of France.
