Sample text

Consulting a dictionary is not very helpful because the specific meaning can only be derived from the context. Thus we use the hermeneutic approach which is based on the principle that we cannot understand the parts of a text until we understand the whole and vice versa. This means that we need to look at how the word ‘landscape’ is related to other terms in a particular text. From these relations we derive the meaning or implied meanings of the word. In legal texts such as the ones dealt with in this study we have the additional benefit that the term must actually be defined exactly when it comes to the implementation of the law or regulation.
