This EJLR issue on “Plain Language: New perspectives and recent outcomesin European and International arena” draws its plain language reform data fromthe United Kingdom, Italy, the European Union, Australia, Pakistan, and theinternational context. The focus of investigation is centrally on the analysis ofdiscourse (very broadly construed to include lexico-grammatical analyses as wellas generic and textual analyses) but with the analyses cited in particular contexts(legal, national, and international). These issues are examined in a more detailedform in the contributions to this volume, which focus on the legal, linguistic, andcultural aspects of plain language discourse in different European and non-Euro‐pean countries. In order to highlight the transformations and/or adaptations oflegal texts in terms of plain language reform, the investigation of textual and phe‐nomena has been conducted taking into account the cross-cultural traits.
