Sublanguages _differ from each other, and from the "stan- dard Ian~age, in their syntactic, semantic, and discourse vrolx:rties. Understanding these differences is important'if -we are to improve our ability to process these sublanguages. We have developed a sen~.'- automatic ~ure for identifying sublangnage syntact/c usage from a sample of text in the sublanguage..We describe the results of applying this procedure to taree text samples: two sets of medical documents and a set of equipment failure me~ages.
