"Att skriva avtal är att förutse problem": Medierad diskursanalys som metod för att studera bolagsjuristers textbruk

Abstract [en]

By applying concepts from Mediated Discourse Analysis (MDA, Scollon & Scollon 2004), this article contributes to the field of applied linguistics theoretically and empirically. The theoretical issue is the problematization raised by e.g. Karlsson (2010) on how to regard the text–“context” relationship. The empirical contribution concerns our knowledge about how texts are used in professional communication. The data consists of observations of company lawyers’ work, interviews, a focus group, a few texts and feedback from lawyers on preliminary findings. The results show that the writing of contracts is a predominant social practice (or practice of nexus, as several practices are included in this) for company lawyers; that this practice includes anticipating and avoiding problems for the company; and how this practise is locally performed together with other professional representatives. MDA is shown i.e. to include concepts for analysing actors dealing with complexity out of the immediate interaction.
