Ordinary Meaning: A Theory of the Most Fundamental Principle of Legal Interpretation by Brian G. Slocum
English | 2016 | ISBN: 022630485X | 344 pages | PDF | 1 MB
Legal interpretation is built around one key question: by what standard should legal texts be interpreted
The traditional doctrine is that words should be given their “ordinary meaning”: words in legal texts should be interpreted in light of accepted standards of communication. Yet often, courts fail to properly consider context, refer to unsuitable dictionary definitions, or otherwise misconceive how the ordinary meaning of words should be determined. In this book, Brian Slocum builds his argument for a new method of interpretation by asking glaring, yet largely ignored, questions. What makes one particular meaning the “ordinary” one, and how exactly do courts conceptualize the elements of ordinary meaning Ordinary Meaning provides a much-needed, revised framework, boldly instructing those involved with the law in how the components of ordinary meaning should properly be identified and developed in our modern legal system.
