Abstract [en]

This chapter sketches an exemplary picture of the emergence and development of medical written discourse. Medical articles published in scientific journals during three centuries - the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries - are analysed and compared. The results are discussed in relation to the varied contextual frameworks in which the texts were written. Socio-historical changes in relation to text patterns and linguistics expressions of evaluation are thus related to different scientific stages: the pre-establishing stage, the establishing stage and the specialized stage.
