    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The study uses the methodology of sociocultural construction grammar to trace the linguistic development of Middle Low German. Using historical legal texts as an example, it describes and explains the development and transformation of function word constructions. These developments are understood as socio-genetic processes that contribute to differentiating the communal “constructicon” of legal writers.
