Abstract

This chapter studies the effects of meaning generated by re-writing operations (insertions, deletions, replacements) in a corpus of social worker reports. Intended to describe the situation of a child and his or her family, these reports are produced within the framework of educational guidance and assessment orders. The <i>proper</i> functioning of the judicial process is therefore contingent upon the <i>proper</i> composition of these reports. In this context, we focus our attention on the modifications undertaken by the reports&#8217; authors with a view to making the writing more precise or adjusting the intensity of certain expressions &#8211; a composition process that navigates between producing an effect of objectivity and producing an effect of subjectivity.
