Easy Language in the United Kingdom

Deborah Chinn (Lead / Corresponding author), Susan Buell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The purpose of the present Handbook of Easy Languages in Europe is to shed light on Easy Language both as a language form with specific features and as a phenomenon used to fulfil certain functions in society. Until recently, the field of Easy Language has consisted of national initiatives but has lacked literature providing a more general overview of the concept. Until very recent years, the field has had no established research tradition. This volume is the first attempt
to provide an overview of Easy Language in Europe. The various contributors provide detailed descriptions of Easy Language in their own European countries. The book starts with an introduction to Easy Language, briefly discussing some of its general conditions, then highlighting some important aspects specifically related to research and terminology.
