Yksityiskohdat

The study assesses the diachronic development of complexity in Early Modern English parliamentary acts and proclamations between 1491 and 1707. The work defines complexity as the number, variety and organization of linguistic elements and incorporates new linguistic features for the investigation. How do complexity features function in historical legal writing? How do the features develop diachronically and how systematic are the genres on their linguistic elements?
