Dear List Members,
I'm a Ph.D. student and I am studing sublanguages. I consider that weather reports is a clear example of sublanguage. In all the bibliography I have consulted, they have all the features to be considered a sublanguage.
But some researchers told me that they would consider weather reports as being more a controlled language than a sublanguage because the writer is not free in his word choice and he has to follow a rigid style sheet.
I'd really like to know your opinions about this. Sorry if this is a very obvious question, but it's important for my research.
Thank you very much for your help.
