Extracts from the BNC

4365  . Press reporting of court cases enhances public knowledge and appreciation of the workings of the law , and it assists the deterrent effect of heavy sentences in criminal cases .

4366  . The Act applies only to convictions which have resulted in a sentence of no more than thirty months' imprisonment , and which have been "spent" - ie a certain period of time has elapsed since the passing of sentence .

4367  . Seven years is the rehabilitation period for prison sentences of six months or under ; five years for all other sentences which fall short of imprisonment , save for an absolute discharge which is "spent" (not that is should carry a blameworthy connotation in any event) after a bare six months .

4368  . They are generally awarded by juries , who have neither the power nor the proficiency to impose a sentence in any other area of law .

4369  . Short , clipped sentences are generally easy to understand .

4370  . (b) Avoid convoluted sentence structures .

4371  . Such a style may sometimes become a little wearing , and may , perhaps , lack elegance , but a set of standard terms is not read for pleasure.There is a tendency to make sentences unnecessarily complex , perhaps because it is thought that a convoluted structure makes them seem more formal .

4372  . However , this can make sentences convoluted .

4373  . Coode suggested that a legal sentence should be structured as follows : 1 The "case" -the circumstances in which the sentence applies .

4374  . One possibility is to follow the principles of drafting devised by George Coode in the 19th century (and described in Piesse , The Elements of Legal Drafting).2 The "condition" -acts which must be done to make the sentence operative .

4375  . This approach follows van Dijk (1977) in regarding not only sentences but also textuality as the proper study of linguistics .

4376  . The verb in a sentence such as The sun shines brightly is not deictic in the sense that the verb to come is , but is nevertheless deictic because it is part of a system which relates specific entities to reference points .

4377  . If I say one morning while looking out of my window , The sky is blue , then I am using this sentence deictically .

4378  . It is not possible to state the truth conditions of sentences with certain deictic elements and terms without reference to the deictic function in context .

4379  . The core of such analysis is that sentences with deictic elements and terms encode propositions only by virtue of the specific contexts in which they occur .

4380  . For (3) we might have : where the sentence S encodes a function f of possible contexts (c) to transform it into an utterance u .

4381  . face-to-face.Again , sentences only express propositions by virtue of specific contexts and a specific encoder within a deictic field .

4382  . How many times has one ever had recourse to a term like anadiplosis ? One could always spell it out : "The final word or words of a clause or sentence repeated as the first word or words of the next clause or sentence" ; and only use anadiplosis if the regularity of the feature required the economy of a label .

4383  . The existential sentence strongly suggests that there is nothing metaphorical about this experience for Lok .
