  1. Thank you for your kind words, Margaret :-)

    Of course I’m also interested in “Fachsprache” per se, but the quotes I cited are just (to me: funny, and from a legal point of view just plain wrong) examples of use by non-lawywers that I happened to stumble across.

    You know the adage about a little bit of knowledge…

  2. What a surprise, Ingmar. I didn’t recognize you! Your profile is very slim.
    I should think there are a few examples of misuse out there even by real lawyers.
