Welcome to Law as a Second Language®! The mission of Law as a Second Language® is to facilitate comprehension of the languages and terminology of law and promote multilingual, multicultural legal literacy.

Semantic MediaWiki provides the collaborative tools[1] with which registered users[2] can create, edit, organize, search, and analyze profiles of the terms and phrases of law (form in English with example, formulario en español con ejemplo, formulário em português com exemplo):

  • language and function;
  • plurals;
  • alternative spellings;
  • pronunciations;
  • abbreviations, acronyms, and initialisms;
  • origin, manner, and change of usage;
  • antecedent terms and phrases;
  • metaphors, metonyms, and other figurative expressions;
  • synonyms;
  • antonyms;
  • homonyms;
  • transcriptions and transliterations;
  • translation equivalents;
  • cognates;
  • false friends;
  • definitions; and
  • ontologies and taxonomies.


Better knowledge of legal terminology will help all of us elevate our individual and collective capacities to communicate, educate, and participate in the global community of law. In turn, your contributions[3] will fortify the ecosystems of legal literacy and access to justice around our world!
